The Three Sisters, also known as Mount Trinity, is a mountain immediately north of Fernie, British Columbia, northwest of the confluence of Fairy Creek with the Elk River. It should not to be confused with the Alberta Rockies' peaks of the same name, located further north outside Canmore.
The summit on the middle sister is the highest point in the Fernie area, at 2,788 m (9,147 ft). The Three Sisters is a popular subject for photographers.
Local legend states this peak came about because a young Indian chief could not choose between three girls for a wife, so he was turned into Mount Proctor. The maidens were so distraught, they prayed to be turned into mountains as well, and became the Three Sisters.
