Brandywine Mountain, 2,213 m or 7,260 ft, is a summit in the Powder Mountain Icefield of the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains of southwestern British Columbia, Canada, about 25 km (16 mi) west of the resort town of Whistler.

Its name is derived from that of Brandywine Falls, which was the result of a bet over the falls' height (with the wagers being a bottle of wine and a bottle of brandy).[citation needed]
