BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE

PACK YOUR PELTS AND HIT THE ICE: QUEBEC GETS THE WORLD'S COOLEST NEW HOTEL


Order a double on the rocks — a double bed, that is — at Canada’s new ICE HOTEL (aka Hôtel de Glace), opening this month in Quebec City. Modeled on the original Ice Hotel in Sweden, the seasonal igloo-in-name-only uses 4,500 tons of snow and 250 tons of ice to fashion grand 16-foot ceilings, ice candelabras, and luxury suites providing deer pelts between your Thinsulated backside and the chilling mattress. Warm up with a shot of vodka — in an ice shot glass, of course — at the Absolut Ice Bar. Then ogle the ice sculptures and take in a film in the frozen cinema. Doubles at $100 per person include a hot (yes!) breakfast.
