Windtower is a 2,695-metre (8,842-foot) tower-like summit located in the Wind Valley of Kananaskis Country in the Canadian Rockies of Alberta, Canada. Its nearest higher peak is Mount Lougheed, 3.0 km (1.9 mi) to the southeast.
Windtower is a conspicuous landmark that can be seen from Highway 1, the Trans-Canada Highway in the Canmore area. Although not of remarkable elevation, the mountain has an imposing, overhanging north face with an appearance similar to peaks in The Bugaboos.

Photography Tips

It gets very windy on the summit so if you use a tripod I would suggest bringing a sandbag to add some weight to it.
