    I'm guessing that was followed by a wicked day of skiing from the heli or ski plane?

    Try this one:

    Indeed, it was a superb heli day in the Ben Ohaus in August 2005. How did you guess? [​IMG]
    A long day though, driving from and back to Wanaka.

    Yours looks like the Canadian Rockies. No idea where though. I'll take a wild punt and say Lake Louise?

    Right continent - wrong country. A well known mountain feature (has a name) very close to a ski town.

    Thank you very much ! The lake is Maroon lake, at the end of Maroon Creek road which is a snowmobile and XC road in winter !
    Everyone who gets all the way up there, make sure you get that photo of *Maroon Bells*

    Anyway I am hopeless at posting photos - so MP please put one up for me. [​IMG]

    This one might be easy:

    (the plush slugs might be a clue - they aren't too happy for a reason)

    Edit: its actually flat as opposed to what the camera is showing. [​IMG]

    If that's right, I won't be able to post a pick today so go ahead and post another. Might sneak one in tonight or tomorrow. Could be wrong though.

    If thats where I think it than is its a trick question as its not even overseas!

    Looks remarkably like a view of Lake Jindabyne not far past east Jindy heading for the dam wall?

    A slightly obscure resort in a region known for having awesome skiing, I'm sure a few will know it.

    Donza has got it!

    Great mountain, not the steepest but the possibilities for fresh powder after a storm are plentiful!
