How Flute Got Its Name

Ever wonder how Flute Summit got its name? Well, Piccolo, Flute and Oboe, adopted in 1965, refer to three secondary summits extending southeast from Whistler Mountain. The lowest summit was named Oboe in reference to the instrument with the lowest pitch of the three, the middle summit was named Flute in reference to the instrument with the middle pitch, and of course, the highest summit was named Piccolo in reference to the instrument with the highest pitch.
