An Estonian tourist known as Pavel had one too many drinks at Cervinia Resort when he decided to call it a night and head back to his hotel. Unfortunately, he took a wrong turn and began heading up the mountainside.
According to Italian newspaper La Stampa, Pavel didn’t notice that he had taken a wrong turn until it was too late.
At some point between 2 and 3 am, Pavel finally realized that he had made a mistake, but through sheer luck he stumbled across Igloo, a restaurant and bar that was closed for the night. He broke in to seek shelter.
Staff discovered Pavel in the morning, sleeping on a makeshift bed made out of a bench and a few cushions.
Says the resort: “Welcome to the Matterhorn’s great ski district, where the excitement starts as soon as you arrive and never stops.” They’re evidently not kidding.
