The Black Tusk, located in Garibaldi Provincial Park of British Columbia, Canada, is the remains of an extinct stratovolcano. The 7,608 foot peak that is part of the Garibaldi Range of the Coast Mountains, is visible from the Whistler Blackcomb ski area, and along the Sea-to-Sky Highway, just south of Whistler. The lower portions of the Black Tusk are a popular backpacking and scrambling destination. Native Squamish legend says that the peak is where the mythical Thunderbird lives. In their native language it is known as t'ak't'ak mu'yin to’a in7in'a'xe7en (Landing Place of the Thunderbird).
