Are mountains formed by glaciers?

    Yes. Valleys are formed by the movement of glaciers, so in areas where many glaciers have passed by, mountains may result out of the “negative space.” There are also other ways that mountains form, such as the collision of tectonic plates.

    Valley glaciers sculpture and erode mountains, but they would not form if there were not mountains already there, so they do not form the mountains in the sense of lifting them up. Continental glaciers tend to actually smooth out hills and even low mountains as they grind over them.
