Kananaskis Range (Ship's Range)
Parent Area: Front Ranges
 

Area: 175 sq km.Location: The Kananaskis Range runs SSE from the Buller Creek to the northern tip of Lower Kananaskis Lake. It is bounded on the east by the Kananaskis River, from which it gets its name. On the west, it is separated from the Spray Mountains by Smuts Creek and Smith Dorrien Creek. On the North Galatea Creek and Buller Creek effectively separates it from the Front Ranges. Includes: Excludes Mount Buller because Buller Creek effectively ends the Range on the N. If Buller was included, due to the fact you would have to head around Buller Creek and the saddles are quite high, one could argue on then including Bogart and others in the Range. History: The peaks in the Kananaskis Range are mainly the names of ships that were involved in the Battle of Jutland and it was previously known as Ships Range.
