Static Peak is a mountain peak in the Colorado State Forest State Park in the Never Summer Mountain Range. It is located in a chain of peaks and lies between Nokhu Crags to the north and Mount Richthofen to the south. To the east lies the shallow basins of Snow Lake and to the west the mountain descends directly into the deep waters of Lake Agnes.
Approximately 24–29 million years ago, rising magma began to create volcanoes that were the predecessors of the Never Summer Mountains. The magma cooled into granitic formations that have weathered into the current mountain range.
