Three Sisters (Mt Trinity) According to legend, a young Ktunaxa Chief found great difficulty choosing a bride. There were three very beautiful maidens to choose from. The older Chiefs asked the Spirits to help. The Spirits considered indecision a grievous fault and the young Chief was turned into a mountain where he would look at what he could never have. The maidens’ grief was so great that they asked also be turned into mountains. Today we see the young Chief as Mount Proctor with the maidens as the Three Sisters standing proud beside him. tourismfernie.com | ferniestoke.com #ferniestoke Experience the legends of Fernie this spring.
