Mistaya Mountain is located on the border of Alberta and British Columbia, on the Continental Divide. It was named in 1918. Mistaya is either the Cree name for "grizzly bear" or is the Stoney word for "much wind".

Mistaya is an easyish, non-technical mountain with good views, especially to the north, north-west and south.
