The Boundary Ranges, also known in the singular and as the Alaska Boundary Range, are the largest and most northerly subrange of theCoast Mountains. They begin at the Nass River, near the southern end of the Alaska Panhandle in the Canadian province of British Columbiaand run to the Kelsall River, near the Chilkoot Pass, beyond which are the Alsek Ranges of the Saint Elias Mountains, and northwards into the Yukon Territory flanking the west side of the Yukon River drainage as far as Champagne Pass, north of which being the Yukon Ranges. To their east are the Skeena Mountains and Stikine Plateau of the Interior Mountains complex that lies northwest of the Interior Plateau; the immediately adjoining subregion of the Stikine Plateau is the Tahltan Highland. To their northeast is the Tagish Highland, which is a subregion of the Yukon Plateau. Both highlands are considered in some descriptions as included in the Coast Mountains. The Alexander Archipelagolies offshore and is entirely within Alaska.
