Continental crust is also less dense than oceanic crust, though it is considerably thicker; mostly 35 to 40 km versus the average oceanic thickness of around 7-10 km. ... This forms a keel or mountain root beneath the mountain range, which is where the thickest crust is found.

If it is under the alps, the crust will be 100 kilometers thick.
