    What version of software?

    Are you sure you have a feathered selection? What happens if you drag a solid colour (FG or BG) on the map?

    I have the latest Gimp version

    and yes, I am sure I have a feathered selection. My rough selection is significantly curved whenever I feather it to 50 px.

    When I drag a color to the map, the color still doesn't see the feathered part and colors in the original selection.

    Then something is wrong, as any action should respect the selection. Not sure what more to say, as I've never seen that behaviour.

    It really seems like you don't have a selection. What happen when you hit the quickmask toggle :

    This is basically what happens. THIS IS ONLY AN EXAMPLE.

    The selection is feathered 50 px. when I do Filter > Render > Clouds > Solid Noise, my selection is disregarded and goes to the original selection.

    Looks like you were working on the layer mask rather than the layer.
    I ran through the steps but cut the feather amounts in half for the scale. Here is the file attached.

    Note:
    - The new channel I created based on your selection (step 2).
    - The three new layers. All were created filled with fg colour (black) then the selection was loaded from the saved channel and feathered and filled as per steps 3-6.
    - I added an extra layer called mtn colour and filled the feathered selection with grey to make the mountains more mountainy.

    OK, after attempting to do the mountains I am running into a situation where I am not getting my peaks to look correctly:

    Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?

    Your histogram shows that there is nothing about 75%ish in the source image, so the curves tool has nothing to work with. Did you miss a levels step?
