Parent Area: Canadian Rockies
Area: 65086 sq km.
Location: This is the most famous part of the Canadian Rockies, and the highest of the four main groupings of this range in Canada (the others being the Muskwa Ranges, Hart Ranges and Border Ranges). The Continental Ranges begin in the area of Mount Sir Alexander and McGregor Pass and extend to just beyond Crownest Pass. The three main subgroupings are the Front Ranges, the Park Ranges, and the Kootenay (Western) Ranges, of which the Park Ranges are the most well-known. The eastern boundary as described here is inaccurate and will remain so until a precise boundary between the Front Ranges and the Foothills can be determined.
