Little Goat Mountain

1323m

North Shore Mountains, BC

Despite the official status of this name, Little Goat Mountain is the least interesting objective among the bunch of forested bumps behind the popular Grouse Mountain ski resort. I bagged this peak as part of my Goat Mountain snowshoe ascent, and all of the approach and return is written Goat Mountain’s trip report.
