From the crest of Phillips Mountain “a glacier slopes down for a mile and a half to the edge of the cliffs west of Snowbird Pass. It is such a fine example of a small and complete glacier from névé to foot that I think it worthy of the name Chushina,” wrote Charles D. Walcott after his 1912 reconnaissance of the Robson region.
