The Boudette Peaks are twin peaks, 2,810 metres (9,220 ft) and 2,815 metres (9,236 ft) high, located 1 nautical mile (2 km) west-southwest of Lavris Peak in the northern portion of Mount Hartigan, in the Executive Committee Range, Marie Byrd Land. They were mapped by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and from U.S. Navy trimetrogon photography, 1958–60, and named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names for Eugene L. Boudette, a USGS geologist who was a member of the Marie Byrd Land Traverse Party, 1959–60.[1]
