Often hard to get to and never taken without respect, backcountry mountain scenery tends to reward with some of the most breathtaking moments in nature. The montane landscape is a wild place where moments of silence and tranquility can give way to harsh and unrelenting, if not brutal conditions within a matter of minutes. Nowhere else a Spa can turn into a Thunderstorm just like that… In addition to the moody weather, predatory wildlife, avalanches, the freezing cold and giant crevices are all trying to kill you while you enjoy the nice views.
