Athabasca Pass

Athabasca Pass is a high mountain pass in the Canadian Rockies on the border between Alberta and British Columbia. In fur trade days it connected Jasper House on the Athabasca River with Boat Encampment on the Columbia River; the pass lies between McGillivray Ridge. It is south of Yellowhead north of Howse Pass; the Committee's Punch Bowl, a glacial lake on the continental divide at the summit of the pass, is the headwaters of the Whirlpool River, a tributary of the Athabasca River. It has an outlet to Pacific Creek, a tributary of the Columbia River to the south. Athabaca Pass is first mentioned in the historical record in the papers of British explorer David Thompson, shown the route in 1811 by an Iroquois man named Thomas, it became a major point on the fur trade route between Rupert's Land and the Columbia District, used by the York Factory Express.
