Hornickel Region of the Canadian Rockies just west of Elkford, British Columbia (one of Canada’s highest incorporated communities at an elevation of 1300m or 4265 feet). Both Elkford and Wapiti Mountain are situated just west of the High Rock Range. With its two distinct peaks, Wapiti Mountain is the most discernible mountain seen from Elkford. From town, the two peaks appear to be of similar elevation; however, the north peak is the true summit and is distinctly higher. This is quite obvious once you reach the saddle of the mountain.

Drew Chauder, this hike is to the peak of the mountain, not just the ski hill.

Iv skied this peak 3 times this winter and hiked it 5 already this summer definitely wouldn’t rate it as hard more moderate. Amazing views tho.
