Behind me, on the other side of the mountain, sits one the world's most feared slalom runs. This was taken at around 1600m (5250 feet), the mountain goes up to almost 2000m behind me.

No, this is not in Italy. The peaks just visible in the left corner of the picture on this page and seen in pictures 2 and 3 on the previous page are renowned. Those little dots in the last picture aren't flaws but are actually hot-air balloons.

Zermatt is just over 500km away, while Chamonix is almost 700km distant.

Don't know distances/directions in that part of the world, but I'll try Innsbruck?

First photo had some German language showing so could be Switzerland, Germany or Austria. As distances quoted are quite far I'll go Austria. The only slalom I can think of immediately is Schladming.

Innsbruck is much, much closer - only around 100Km. This is not in Germany, but they do speak German here.

The hills are alive with lots of huts serving alcoholic beverages, but not much music here. The peaks in the pictures are called the "Wilder Kaiser" (Wild Emperor), that should narrow the location down for those who are looking...

Jeannius - I missed your post, sorry. It is in Austria, but this slalom course is called the "Hahnenkamm" (rooster's comb).

Yes, it is Kitzbühel and St. Johann in Austria. I had a week there with my girlfriend, who was from CA/HI and had never actually seen snow in real life before. The Super-G course at Kitz is called the Hahnenkamm and for those who've never seen a race track like that just imagine an ice rink tilted at 40-45° that goes around turns for almost 3 miles with 1500m vertical. They water it daily to keep that ice sheath thick - no mere mortal skier could traverse that run...

You threw me off the scent saying 'feared slalom'. If you'd said feared downhill I'd have said Kitzbuhel. Here's the great Franz Klammer coming down the Strief in 1984... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_jtu2lgStQ Unfortunately his even more famous run in the 1976 Olympics has now been snaffled by the Olympic organisers so is no longer available in full on youtube.

Mike - I stand corrected... I used the wrong race-type in my post. But now that I know that alpine pictures are a weak point for identification on this thread, I will be posting some snowy images should I get up to bat again. But Fred guessed this one first so he is up.

OK, this next one is a good example of someone being low on pictures - i.e. me. I guess I worked this crew too hard and I would like the specific name of the place of business where he is taking a nap.

I thought someone would have recognized this place. This next picture was taken "a stones throw" from the subject picture but this place is upstairs. Both of these pictures were taken in 2010 so things may have changed.

Hint - I would venture to say that practically everyone who has ever participated in this addictive game has been to the place shown in the first picture.

The first image looks like the bar at Village Cay in Road Town from the architecture and background, but I thought it was ground-level only. Perhaps my memory is incorrect, so I'll guess the location as Village Cay.

I was thinking along the same lines as Zanshin and also do not recall a second floor at Village Cay. That being said, the second post seems to indicate it is in a different establishment somewhere nearby.

Zanshin, you are correct with Village Cay. I only had one picture of Village Cay and the nearby place was Bay Cave bar. You are up.

Fran, yes Bat Cave/Spaghetti Junction. My fat clue for the first, and subject photo, was going to be a place that claimed to be the inspiration for Buffett's "Cheeseburger in Paradise".

I thought that the picture would be an easy one - it is from a museum in this city. Here's a view from above:
