Anybody Know Where This Is?

I'm going to post a trip report sometime in the next few days. Just wondering if anyone can identify this location.

Si, you don't get to play.

I have no idea but wish I did. It is a gorgeous view.

It looks like the main spine of the Rockies, perhaps near Banff or Lake Louise.

It looks a little boney.

Mt Robson (sp) Canada?

Isn't that off of the back bowls at Blue Mountain, Pa?

You're all just a tiny bit west of the actual location.

There's a very large body of water between the US/Canada and where this photo was taken. Also, the trip report I'll be doing is NOT about a ski trip but rather a fall trip that we took.

This photo is, however, taken within 2km (huge hint!) of the site of an annual World Cup race.

Looks a bit like Jungfrau region (Switzerland)

You're getting much closer...

It's still further east, though.

As far as the photo, however, you're still getting closer.

You're now a little too far north and west (I believe).

Is the suspense killing everyone else? I know I'm on the dege of my seat.

Zion Zig Zag is the winner.

The photo was taken last September just outside Kranjska Gora in the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia. Kranjska Gora hosts a World Cup Slalom and GS every year on this course:



As a matter of fact, my photo was taken just about exactly where the "D" in Podkoren (in red) is on this photo of the course.

And since we have so many ski instructors on Epic, I thought I'd throw in this little teaser. This photo was taken about 2 km to the right of the base of the race course:



We took 10-day walking/hiking tour in the mountains of Slovenia last fall. I've been meaning to do a trip report on it for some time and I'm now finally getting around to it.

If any of you are looking for a beautiful, charming, friendly and inexpensive place to visit, you really ought to consider Slovenia. We absolutely loved it.

Thanks for playing.

That is the view from my back deck. Nice place for a cold beer after a sweet day.

Lasko?

That was the beer we had on practically every deck in Slovenia. Very, very good beer.

Bob, I can't back up my bullshit, but I can dream your life.

Bob,

I guess I would have gotten it just from the context and original picture but just in case, there is NO DOUBT I would have missed it after the last picture

OK, so where's the trip report already.
