Kyrgyz mountain?: left peak has a chute shape on near side, right peak has double apex, shallow dip between them and generally glaciated. Italian mountain: left peak does not have a chute shape on near side, right peak has single apex, deep dip between them and generally snow covered.

It is certainly Mt Baker. Exact match.

Mt Baker is also awesome, but they could have used a local mountain just as easily. (Also, since the photo was from Mt Baker, it was almost certainly a stolen pic).
