The view is from what’s informally known as Marble Peak, in west central Colorado. This is an incredibly crowded backcountry skiing area, in fact, I heard they’re planning on building a ski resort with three high speed quads in the works. Note all the ski and snowmobile tracks, not to mention six helicopters dropping folks off for heli-snowboarding. This view from GPS cords, NAD83 / WGS84, 39.03286, 107.18925.
