The article deals with the glaciation of selected regions in Canadian Rocky Mountains and Columbia Mountains and examines in detail glacial morphological forms. It is based on author's field research and interpretation with regard to the glacial forms classification and origins. Glacial fluctuations in the area studied were influenced by climatic changes; most glacial morphological forms are supposed to be relatively recent. Frequent slope movements cause ongoing creation of talus and other accummulations.
