Snow, sweat, testosterone and the sound of chainsaws. Every four years, over a period of three months in winter, wood is being cut in a steep mountain high above Lake Ägeri and prepared for log rafting. Neither economic change nor technology has been able to replace this traditional and sustainable craft in Switzerland.
I’ve watched this numerous times. As someone who heats with wood and processes my own wood, and having worked for a few summers on logging crews in Oregon, this piece has great appeal for me. Very well done.
