Tricouni Peak is a mountain located south of Cypress Peak on the Squamish-Cheakamus divide within the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains in southwestern British Columbia, Canada. It was named by Tom Fyles during its first ascent party in 1931 due to its appearance of a 3-pointed Tricouni boot nail. Before its official name, it was originally suggested to be Tricouni Mountain because the mountain had the appearance of three cones from the distance.
