Sigurd Peak - South Side
A broad peak north of Sigurd Creek and about 2 km east of Sigurd Lake. The peak can be ascended via skis till at least May, sometimes in conjunction with a long weekend trip to Ossa and Pelion.

Name Notes: Several official and unofficial place names in the area derive their origin from Sigurd Andersen, an Elaho trapper in the 1920s: Sigurd Creek, Sigurd Peak, Andersen Beach (on Squamish River at Mile 18). The peak's alternate name, Station "Rose", was mentioned in Neal Carter's 1964 history of Tantalus Range mountaineering. This probably refers to Rose Tatlow, the former Squamish newpaper publisher and wife of Hank Tatlow (Clarence Elmer Tatlow), Sigurd Creek trapper. Rose mentioned there is a local mountain named after her.
