A hot destination under a shelter of thick snow
Want to sleep in a castle of ice? Hotel de Glace, a short drive outside Quebec City, is open until March 25. (Yes, there is a real mattress - not just ice - under the fur throw.)
The music is thumping and few can resist the urge to move to the beat in the ice hotel bar.
Vanessa Provencher pours the signature cider drink in, not on, the rocks.
Park your sleigh outside your room. A guided tour of the hotel is worth the expense ($43.75 for a family, $17.50 for an adult). Soon, an outdoor skating rink and snow and ice slide will open to the public.
Going to the chapel and we're going to get married... Designers in Quebec City are fashioning bridal gowns specifically for ice hotel weddings. Fur stoles are a must.
