Got this when logging in to my PC this evening, appears to be one heck of a ski resort, just not sure where (I'm guessing France?)

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this isn't a question about the photograph; it is a question about the location. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Why guess France? Pretty random guess \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @osullic I've been to the mid-west, those mountains don't resemble the Rockies, beyond that just a randmon guess (it ain't NY, that's for sure :-) ) \$\endgroup\$

This is the Dachstein Mountains in Austria, showing the south face of Hunerkogel. Indeed, it is one heck of a sky resort and offers many other activities such as glacier trekking and paragliding.

To locate photos and their owner, maybe find a bigger size or buy it, try TinEye or Google Images.

TinEye the photo.

Buy royalty free rights from Getty Images.

TinEye sorts for: Best Match, Most Changed, Biggest Image, Newest and Oldest.

Google Images returns a "Best Match" Link which can be refined by Size, Time, and Rights along with a regular Google Search returning "About 25,270,000,000 results, in total, but only seven Links" (in this case) including Wikipedia (and a different photo), the 'Tourist Site' for the mountain, and a few other sites willing to sell the image.
