Windtower Mountain is an intriguing peak. Its name contributes to this as does the curvature of the mountain and the fact that views of it, at least from Highway #1 are limited. The inside of the curve faces towards the northwest and it is difficult to enjoy a view when this aspect of the mountain is not in shadow.

*A hiking route to the summit is described in Gillean Daffern’s Kananaskis Country Trail Guide Volume 1.
