Mount Richardson is the highest point in the Skoki valley area and forms the western ramparts of the Richardson-Pika-Ptarmigan trio, a popular destination for scramblers and ski touring in the winter. Access is from the backside of the Lake Louise ski area, via the long flat valley, and then a gradual gentle ascent to Hidden Lake. From Hidden Lake, the mountain rises quite sharply. The south ridge is the 'unofficial' route but other variations are possible, only with ice gear.
