Ghost Peak is a 2,500-metre (8,202-foot) mountain summit located in British Columbia, Canada.[4]

Description

Part of the Selkirk Mountains, Ghost Peak is situated 14 km (8.7 mi) southeast of Revelstoke and 3.1 km (1.9 mi) northeast of Mount Cartier, the nearest higher neighbor.[1] Precipitation runoff from the mountain drains west to Arrow Lakes and north to the nearby Illecillewaet River via Greeley Creek. Ghost Peak is more notable for its steep rise above local terrain than for its absolute elevation. Topographic relief is significant as the summit rises 2,063 meters (6,770 ft) above Upper Arrow Lake in 7 km (4.3 mi). The mountain's toponym was officially adopted September 7, 1950, by the Geographical Names Board of Canada.[3]

Climate

Based on the Köppen climate classification, Ghost Peak is located in a subarctic climate zone with cold, snowy winters, and mild summers.[5] Winter temperatures can drop below −20 °C with wind chill factors below −30 °C.
