Skeena Mountains
Parent Area: BC Interior Mountains
 

Area: 32850 sq km. Location: The Skeena Mountains lie at the headwaters of the Skeena River in Northwestern BC. Of course by their very nature, any mountain range is going to be drained by more than one river, names like Skeena mountains simply reflect a viewpoint of people on the Skeena River. To the north, the so called Skeena mountains are drained by the Stikine River. On the northeast they are bounded by The Spatsizi Plateau, and then the Omineca Mountains. On the west they are bounded roughly by the Stewart Cassiar Highway. The southernmost point is roughly Hazelton. To the southeast, the mountains give way to a series of large lakes such as Babine Lake and Stuart Lake, east and south of which is the Nechako Plateau.
