Photographer's Note

This is a photo taken in Idalp in the in Silvetta Arena, a ski area on the Austrian-Swiss border. Silvretta Arena t is one of the largest skiing areas in the Alps. The lift system of the Silvretta Arena has a total of transport capacity of 78,900 people per hour. The system has 3 gondolas, 2 aerial ropeways (80 + 180 passengers), 23 chair lifts, 11 surface lifts. The three gondolas all start in the village of Ischl. Two of them, Fimbababahn and Silvrettabahn, take the passenger to Idalp at height of 2 320 meters. From Idalp you see a number of mountain peaks. I am not sure, but I believe that the peaks seen in this picture are Idjoch, 2760 m and Viderjoch, 2 732 m.
