In this fantastic capture we see a snow-covered ski lift at the top of Åreskutan in central Sweden. Åreskutan is a 1,420 metres (4,660 ft)-high mountain at Åre in Jämtland, Sweden. It is one of the better-known mountains in Sweden and the mountain massif features the largest ski resort area in the country. In 2007, Åre was the host for the 2007 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.

The photo was also a finalist for the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year in 2011.
