Canoe Mountain is a 2,651-metre-elevation (8,698 ft) mountain summit in British Columbia, Canada.


Canoe Mountain is 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) south-southeast of the community of Valemount, at the northern end of the Malton Range, which is a subset of the Monashee Mountains. The Southern Yellowhead Highway traverses the western base of the mountain. Precipitation runoff from Canoe Mountain drains west into Camp Creek which is a tributary of the Canoe River, as well as east into Kinbasket Lake. Topographic relief is significant as the summit rises 1,920 metres (6,300 ft) above the lake in 5 kilometres (3.1 mi). The steep north aspect of the mountain holds a cirque, whereas an unpaved fire service road climbs the modest west slope to a telecommunications tower at the top. The mountain's long-established local name was officially adopted 16 November 1976 by the Geographical Names Board of Canada.[3]


Based on the Köppen climate classification, Canoe Mountain is located in a subarctic climate zone with cold, snowy winters, and mild summers.[4] Temperatures in winter can drop below −20 °C with wind chill factors below −30 °C.
