How cool is this? (No pun intended.)

There is a gallery of photos in the Tribune today showcasing Canada's Hotel de Glace (Ice Hotel). I realize that I regularly share my distaste for the cold, but seriously, this place looks awesome. Maybe only for one night though...

It's a hotel made completely from ice. They rebuild it every year using metal structural supports, packing the snow and ice, letting it freeze around it, and then removing the support. The walls are so thick that it usually stays about 25 degrees inside. Yes, this would require winter coats, etc. But yes, it would be oh so cool. They even supply you with the sleeping bags!

Check out the whole gallery here.
