“Emerald Ridge” adopted in 1973 as agreed by British Columbia, not “Avalanche Ridge” as identified on earlier maps. The name is applied to the ridgeline, not the entire massif.
[the ridge] …is distinctive for its great areas of slide slopes, many of which are mantled with bright green deciduous growth.— memo from BC Parks 1972, file C.1.62
