The Laramide orogeny refers to a phase of mountain building that affected parts of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and lesser areas of nearby states (see the shaded area in the figure below). The Laramide orogeny occurred from approximately 70 million years ago to 40 million years ago during a period when the Farallon oceanic plate was subducting rapidly beneath the western coast of the U.S.

The chief mode of Laramide deformation of the foreland area of south-central and adjacent parts of southwestern New Mexico was uplift of relatively simple basement blocks and subsidence of complementary basins that were similar in style to but smaller in size than some of those of the central Rocky Mountains.

The Laramide orogeny has been defined from both temporal and kinematic criteria, which has led to some confusion as to the meaning of the term.

The event is commonly defined in a temporal context to encompass a basement-involved style of deformation that took place from about. The Laramide orogeny was a period of mountain building in western North America, which started in the Late Cretaceous, 70 to 80 million years ago, and ended 35 to 55 million years exact duration and ages of beginning and end of the orogeny are in dispute.

The Laramide orogeny occurred in a series of pulses, with quiescent phases intervening. Contractional, basement-involved foreland deformation in the Rocky Mountains of the conterminous United States occurred during the latest Cretaceous to Paleogene Laramide : Eric Erslev.
