Encyclopedia > Mountain Time Zone
Mountain Standard Time (MST) is UTC-7, Mountain Daylight Time (MDT) is UTC-6

The Mountain Time Zone of North America keeps time by subtracting seven hours from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC-7) during the shortest days of autumn and winter, and by subtracting six hours during daylight saving time in the spring, summer, and early autumn (UTC-6). The clock time in this zone is based on the mean solar time of the 105th degree meridian west of the Greenwich Observatory.

In the United States and Canada, this time zone is generically called Mountain Time (MT). Specifically, it is Mountain Standard Time (MST) when observing standard time (Winter), and Mountain Daylight Time (MDT) when observing daylight saving time. The exact specification for the location of time zones and the dividing line between zones is set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations at 49 CFR 71.[1] Standard time is the result of synchronizing clocks in different geographical locations within a time zone to the same time rather than using the local meridian as in local mean time or solar time. ...

In some areas, starting in 2007, the local time changes from MST to MDT at 02:00 LST to 03:00 LDT on the second Sunday in March and returns at 02:00 LDT to 01:00 LST on the first Sunday in November.

mountain: Definition, Synonyms and Much More from Answers.com (7836 words)
Mountain belts, as described earlier, typically are grouped according to formation process and types of plates: island arcs, continental arcs (formed with the subduction of an oceanic plate by a continental plate), and collisional mountain belts.
Mountains are formed by the folding, faulting, or upwarping of the Earth's surface due to the movement of plates (see plate tectonics) or by the emplacement of volcanic rock onto the surface.
Mountains are not generally favored for human habitation; the weather is harsher, less food is available, and there is little level ground suitable for farming.

We have been referring to time zones, but in fact it is more convenient to work in terms of what we might call the "time standard" that is used in a time zone.
The city of West Wendover, Nevada is in the Mountain time zone, while the rest of Nevada is in the Pacific.
West Wendover, which is in the Mountain time zone, is an exception in Nevada, which is otherwise in the Pacific time zone.
