Mount Assiniboine is a pyramidal peak mountain located on the Great Divide, on the border between Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, in British Columbia, and Banff National Park, in Alberta.Mt.
Assiniboine was named by George M. Dawson in 1885. When Dawson saw Mt. Assiniboine from Copper Mountain, he saw a plume of clouds trailing away from the top. This reminded him of the plumes of smoke emanating from the teepees of Assiniboine Indians.
Because of its resemblance to the Matterhorn in the Alps, it is nicknamed the “Matterhorn of the Rockies”.
