Mountain climber Luca Vuerich died in an avalanche in 2010, so his family set out to memorialize him by having this mountain-top cabin built.
It’s located in the Italian Alps, and it’s free to use – you just have to climb up to it yourself.
It’s made of prefabricated panels by a famous Italian architect.
The sharp roof line prevents snow from damaging the structure, and the front door opens to the South so the sun will melt any snow blocking the entrance.
The builders needed a helicopter to transport supplies to the site, taking 18 trips in total.
To minimize transportation costs, 16 people were flown to the top to assemble the structure in one day.
They sure built this cabin to withstand strong winds and a ton of snow – literally. I would love to visit, but I don’t think I’ll be making the trek up there – ever.
