Ice Hotel? More like Snow Fort Sleepover.

23 Feb

So we finally made it to the “ice” hotel and guess what: it’s made almost entirely out of snow.

I’m not making this up. Sure there are a few ice sculptures around and the drinking glasses are carved out of frozen water but ninety-eight percent of the main structure is made from compressed snow. I brought this up several times with the “hotel” management in an (unsuccessful) attempt to score a free upgrade but they seemed uninterested in my logical reasoning.

The good news is it’s a full moon tonight and the sleeping bags are warm. We had a couple of drinks at the Ice Bar and then we hung out in the sauna (pronounced s-ow-nah) for half an hour and now we’re going to attempt not to freeze to death in our sleeps.

Check back tomorrow to find out if we survived.
