    For the second consecutive year, local crews commanded by Finnish experts have been building a glorified snow fort: 40,000 cubic metres of snow and 2,000 ice blocks (at 136 kilograms apiece) make up Montreal’s Snow Village Hotel. Over the past few weeks, they have built an ice bar and restaurant, as well as a 25-room hotel, a wedding chapel and a lobby (which, at 9.2 metres high, is the largest ice dome in North America).

    While the ice hotel in Quebec City has been well known since opening in 2001 and lets you sip drinks in cool environs, the Snow Village is a concept imported from Finland and Norway that ups the ante (and competition) with the continent’s first sit-down ice restaurant.
