My husband and I splurged for our 38th wedding anniversary, and stayed a night in this hotel made entirely of ice and snow. :) It was very, very cool--in more ways than the obvious. We enjoyed having the hotel grounds rather private. It was made available to only those spending the night. It had been very crowded during the day, but all non-resident visitors had to leave at 8:30. There was an ice skating rink, ice slides--inside and outside, an ice chapel, an igloo to climb in for fun, a bar serving drinks in "ice glasses."
We slept rather fitfully--but it wasn't the hotel's fault. We had an orientation to teach us how to stay warm in our liners and sleeping bags. We literally slept on a sheet of ice covered with a mattress. My body was warm but my eyes were so cold, it kept me awake. It was 5 degrees. In the morning, we used the hot tubs and saunas. The hot breakfast was great. We laughed so much and had a great time. Many memories!!
