I agree, if we did get taken, it wasn't for a long or dangerous ride. Having just spent last few days on another thread where the question boiled down to physics of airflow versus physics of photoshop.... I obviously need to start being more suspicious of cool pictures! But that won't stop me from looking and enjoying.

Plus, what if it's still a legit pic?? We all wanna go there now.....

i feel stupid to have fallen for it. Anyone know of any reason I shouldn't close the thread?
Because we're having fun reading the replies.
Lars, you feel stupid? Far from it!
Now. who has another pic to put up and figure out where it is?

I'm guessing the backside of Diamond Head??? (But then I don't get out of Mayberry often, other than to ski Mt. Pilot).

btw, slider, you are a good teacher. Nice of you to construct that tutorial with visuals, in the parallel thread on posting pics. Now you need to teach us photoshop tricks!

Thanks DKN. There's alot of cool people here. Some I've skied with and some just come across that way. This ones from my last ski trip.
post #38 of 56
WOW. ok... right there is reason enough to not pull the plug too fast, or stop digging. Never in a million years would I have thought Tehran!? : Unfortunately, the way things are going, a trip there could redefine "extreme skiing."

Plus, this restores my faith that not EVERY pic is faked... unless someone pops up to prove that all the snow pics were falsely dubbed into Iranian tourist site.

Cool picture, and I liked the suspense of reading through the guesses to the actual answer.

The do ski in Iran, some of them fairly well:

The Powder article about skking in Iran was good and I remember it saying that they can get alot of snow. What is funny though is that your mind immediately associates Iran with sand and hot rather than snow or at least mine does.

So, suddenly invading Iran to make it another colony of the US seems like a good idea...

Tehran is only prohibitive if you have a US passport.

It's a nice town, actually. I spent time there on the way to Isfahan, which is one of the most beautiful cities in the world (the whole city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site).

But, Tehran didn't even occur to me as a guess for that pic because I was only there in the summer and I was so keyed in on whether it was SLC or not and, well, who think of Tehran on this board? As for SLC, I didn't see the domineering LDS office building, but figured it might have been another view.

That was fun. If that was a troll, we could use a few more trolls like that once in a while.

Well, thanks for all your guesses. My friend is going to tell me in a few days where the picture is from. He emailed it to me and some friends and asked us to guess, if we got it right we would buy us a round. And if we got it wrong we would buy him one heh. And nope, it's not 'troll bait' even though it was my first post. And I didnt reply because my laptop was stolen and i've been having little access to internet until my new one comes in. :P

Looks like you should go with Tehran. But if that wins.... then you owe everyone on this thread a beer! :

Calgary, scroll to #36 in this string, where Astrotech appears to have solved the mystery (until proven wrong...).

If this is Iran, then I am humbled by the small mind I have. Jeez I gotta get out more.

Here is a pic of Iran, and I've done some browsing..........unbelievable!

You know, if they had some new neuclear reactors for electricity, they could actually add a few more lifts.

Damn that George Bush.

I prefer the diesel-powered chairs that run the resort when the town is blacked-out. Iran has more oil than nuclear energy anyway. (or- so much as I know.) but you're right, damn that george bush. damn any president who didn't have a passport before he entered office.

Thanks for solving the mystery. I would never have thought that Tehran was as beautiful as some of those photos look, or that it got so much snow (or any, for that matter). Our horizons have been broadened .
