Akasik Mountain, elevation 2450 m (8038 feet),[1] is a mountain in the Lillooet Ranges of British Columbia, Canada, located southwest of the town of Lytton.[2]

The mountain is associated in the lore of the Nlaka'pamux people with Skihist Mountain, whose name means "jump" or "leap" and is a reference to a mythological giant who leapt back and forth between Skihist and this summit.[3]
