Massive Avalanche Protection made from stone at the Underbärgli

Necessity is the mother of invention! To protect the alpine hut at the Underbärgli against avalanches and the associated pressure waves, the owners have extended the roof on the north and west sides of the cabin at the same angle with massive stone walls. Possible avalanches simply thunder over the big lodge without causing major damages thanks to these protective structures. The stone ramparts prevent pressure waves from passing under the canopy and to push the roof away.
