DID YOU KNOW? Mount Robson is the highest point in the Canadian Rockies and the 2nd highest in BC. It is 12, 972 feet high (a little more than 2 miles) - that’s about 10 Empire State Buildings, or 11 Eiffel Towers, or 79 Statue of Liberties. Mount Robson was likely named after Colin Robertson, who worked for both the North West Company and the Hudson’s Bay Company at various times in the early 19th century.
