Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Mount Logan

Canada's highest peak, and the second-highest in North America, Mount Logan is found in Kluane National Park and Reserve in the Yukon and reaches a height of 5,959 metres above sea level. Found amongst the Saint Elias Mountains, the peak was discovered in the late 19th century and wasn't climbed, at least not to the summit, until 1925.

The mountain was named after Montreal-born William Edmond Logan, who created the Geological Survey of Canada.
2. Mount Fairweather

The highest peak in British Columbia, Mount Fairweather reaches an altitude of 4,671 metres, making it the eighth-highest mountain in Canada. Sitting on the B.C./Alaska border, Mount Fairweather also happens to be rarely-seen by most; the general remoteness of this location puts it at a spot where visitors need to drive through Alaska to get back into B.C. to see it. Split between Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park on the British Columbia side and Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve on the U.S. side, the real irony is that the weather there is generally quite harsh.

It just happened to be nice on the day it was named.
3. Mount Robson

The second-highest mountain in British Columbia, Mount Robson is the tallest peak in the Canadian Rocky Mountains at a height of 3,954 metres above sea level. Found on the eastern border of the province in Mount Robson Provincial Park, it abuts onto Jasper Provincial Park on the Alberta side. Because of its steepness and the general state of weather in this part of the range, Mount Robson is one of the harder peaks in Canada to climb, with a one in ten chance of reaching the summit for advanced climbers.
4. Mount Columbia

Heading eastward, Mount Columbia has little to do with the province of British Columbia. Instead, it's actually the highest peak in Alberta, reaching an elevation of 3,747 metres above sea level. Sitting in the Rockies in the Winston Churchill Range, it's close to Jasper National Park and, across the border, Mount Robson.

The Columbia Icefield, which reaches through Jasper towards Banff National Park, is also found in the shadow of this peak.
5. Mount Assiniboine

At a height of 3,618 metres, Mount Assiniboine is a picturesque mountain on the Alberta/B.C. border and it is, as such, surrounded by National Park land-- Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park on the west and Banff National Park on the east. Generally quite remote, the mountain might be one of the best-hidden for anyone excluding dedicated mountaineers. Anyone who comes across it, however, would be able to marvel at a mountain rivalling the Matterhorn in its unique shape.
6. The Seven Sisters Peaks

A massif of seven peaks in British Columbia, the Seven Sisters Peaks are near Cedarvale, B.C. (west of Smithers and northeast of Prince Rupert) and consist of varying rocky prominences overlooking relatively untouched wilderness. The heights of these mountains range between 2,747 metres for Weeskinisht Peak to 2,534 metres for Tingi Peak, and all of them are surrounded by subarctic glaciers.
7. Whistler Mountain

Reaching 2,181 metres high in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Whistler Mountain is one of the most-visited winter sports destinations in Canada, sporting skiing and snowboarding trails used not only by enthusiasts, but Olympians. Part of the Fitzsimmons Range, Whistler-Blackcomb and the tourist town of Whistler are actually located in Garibaldi Provincial Park, only a short trip along the Sea to Sky Highway from Vancouver.
8. Grouse Mountain

Although the elevation of Grouse Mountain is only 1,231 metres above sea level, it's one of the few mountains in this quiz to overlook the sea, doing so from above Vancouver. Visitors to this mountain should have no trouble ascending to its heights as service is provided by cable car along its side. During the summer, it's a prime spot for hiking and overlooking the largest Canadian west coast city; in the winter, it's a ski resort.
9. Mont Tremblant

Reaching a top elevation of 875 metres above sea level, Mont Tremblant might not be the highest peak in the province of Quebec, but it's one of its most accessible, especially for skiers, since it's only a short drive north of Montreal in the Laurentian Mountains, some of the oldest mountains in Canada.

It's likely unsurprising that it's a popular go-to destination for Eastern Canada in general as, with the Rockies being so far west, it provides the perfect nearby conditions for winter sports.
10. Mont Royal

At only 233 metres above sea level, Mont Royal is the namesake of the Quebec city of Montreal and is the prominence around which the city is built. Overlooking the island that makes up Montreal's main core, Mont Royal is accessible by numerous roadways from which local suburbs spill forth. Slightly to the southeast, visitors to the city will find the downtown core and the St. Lawrence River as it runs from Lake Ontario to the west towards the Atlantic, much further to the northeast.
