The CBC has gotten wind of a new snow village resort to be constructed on the Île Sainte-Hélène in downtown Montreal. The information was released (leaked?) via a flyer on Twitter. Plans for the snow village suggest it will have an ice bar, ice restaurant, ice hotel, ice wedding chapel, a spa, and something called a Panoramic Igloo. The CBC reports snowshoeing, dog sledding, and an ice replica of the city of Montreal among the attractions.
The snow village will be built by a company that has already opened snow villages in Finland and Norway. A formal announcement about the snow village, which will be open from January through March, is expected next week.
