Spending so much time in the same part of the mountains we learn to spot little details; If you turn around 360 degrees there will always be something you haven't noticed before, the colour of Oeschinensee in different lights or a new folding in the mountains. Even if it's just the clouds playing with the view, it never looks the same.
The real rewards don't come from our surroundings though; they come from our work.
When at the hut we wake up at 7 am and have breakfast with the guests, before heading out for a day on the ice. We walk on this glacier several times a week, and we know it very well, but you never get bored of the face of a Scout who just stepped over their first crevasse or has just done their first ice climb. Their faces glow with a mix of adrenaline and happiness, and that’s what makes it all worth it.
