Parent Area: Duncan Ranges
Area: 536 sq km.Location: The Battle Range is one of several ranges lying south of Glacier National Park and northeast of Arrow Lake. The eastern boundary is the Duncan River, which divides the Purcells from the Selkirks. The northern boundary is Battle Brook. The south-west boundary is the Westfall River, Kellie Creek.
Terrain: Very steep and heavy snow, numerous pocket glaciers. In winter, this area is noted for spectacular powder snow avalanches.
Note that while the Sugarloaf group is officially considered part of the Battle Range, for all other intents and purposes it is considered part of the Deville Ranges, not the Battle Range.
