Whitehorn Mountain is a 3,399-metre (11,152 ft) peak located in eastern British Columbia, Canada near the Alberta border. It is one of British Columbia's 102 ultra prominent peaks.

Whitehorn Mountain was first climbed by Conrad Kain in a rare solo ascent for him. Kain was in the Mount Robson area guiding a reconnaissance party led by Arthur Wheeler in 1911 when he completed the solo ascent, much to the disgruntlement of Wheeler.[2]
