Cold Comforts: 10 Hotels Made of Ice and Snow
Do you love winter weather enough to stay in a hotel room made of ice and snow, where the temperature stays around -4°C (25°F)? Some winter resorts give you the chance to do just that. You won't freeze to death. While the beds in such hotels are usually made of a slab of ice, hoteliers want their guests to be comfortable, so they're equipped with insulated mattresses, animals skins, and arctic sleeping bags. In these cold weather resort areas, you can be assured it's a lot colder outside. You'd better get your reservations in now, because most hotels built of ice won't survive the longer sunny days of spring. Read about ten such hotels in a list I compiled for mental_floss.
