Spatsizi Mountain is a mountain in the Spatsizi Plateau, a sub-plateau of the Stikine Plateau in north-central British Columbia, Canada. The name "Spatsizi" derives from the Sekani language and means "red goat", as mountain goats in this region are known to roll on a particular red mountain, resulting in a red colour to their coats.
