Aye Mountain is located on the Canadian provincial boundary between Alberta and British Columbia on the Continental Divide. It was named in 1913 by the Interprovincial Boundary Survey.


The mountain is composed of sedimentary rock laid down during the Precambrian to Jurassic periods. Formed in shallow seas, this sedimentary rock was pushed east and over the top of younger rock during the Laramide orogeny.


Based on the Köppen climate classification, Mount Aye is located in a subarctic climate with cold, snowy winters, and mild summers. Temperatures can drop below −20 C with wind chill factors below −30 C.
