The Carter Glaciers are located in the U.S. state of Montana
in Glacier National Park
. The glaciers are situated along a ridge immediately to the east of the Continental Divide, mainly below an unnamed peak which rises to 9,164 feet (2,793 m). The glaciers cover an area of approximately 40 acres (0.16 sq km) at an elevation between 8,500 feet (2,600 m) and 7,200 feet (2,200 m) above sea level. The Carter Glaciers consist of between three and four separate small glacial remnants, none of which meet the threshold of 25 acres (0.10 sq km) often cited as being the minimum size to qualify as an active glacier.
