Unlike in stellar cosmology, the relative coolness of mountains increases rather than decreases with distance. So, while the Ruby Mountains are clearly somewhat cool in absolute terms, they are more so for Wisconsin than Nevada. However, they pale in relative coolness to mountains in Alaska and Mexico, and are dwarfed (both literally and figuratively) by the Andes, Himalayas, Kili and all of those other mountains that are so far away. Olympus Mons is way, way cooler than all of those, and some undiscovered crystalline mountain range wrapping an exotic ice planet on the other side of the Milky Way would be mind bendingly fucking cool if we actually knew about it.
