Could it be the Materhorn, sure looks like it.

I don't think it is the same shape. The mountain in Bouler's background
has more of a shoulder below the peak, and has some jagged secondary
peaks lower down that are not evident in the Matterhorn picture.

There are several alpine peaks that are of that general shape, but they
differ in detail.

At first I thought it might be the Meije, which is in the Ecrins Massif
of the Hautes Alpes in France, but I don't think it is.

Of course it all depends on the direction from which you are looking.
The appearance of any mountain changes greatly from one side to another.

Anyway, it's a beautiful picture of a great mountain, regardless of its
name.

Here's a link to La Meige, with a good pictu

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Meije

Other sites related to La Grave / La Meige talk about extreme skiing at
the place. My daughter and her husband ski La Meige for 4 months every
winter. He has been doing that for 20 years. They are still alive to
tell about it.
