Crowsnest Mountain is a mountain located in the extreme southwestern corner of Alberta, Canada, near the Crowsnest Pass. The mountain was originally named by the local Cree Indians due to the ravens that nested in the area.
The mountain is isolated from the nearby High Rock Range, except for its northerly neighbour, the Seven Sisters Mountain. The upper sections of the mountain were originally part of the aforementioned range but were pushed away and over top the younger rocks now at the bottom.
The scrambling route on the north side was first ascended in 1915.
