The concept is awesome: ice bar with snow activities, yet there just wasn't enough to do to keep us occupied. You could use the kick sleds and go back and forth over a small space or ride down an ice slide that was very small....More

What a terrific fun experience ... for “kids” of 4 to 84 ! High speed ride on a husky-drawn sled is exhilarating . Try the kick start skis, the highly slippery slide, pose for photos in Santa’s grotto and with other life sized ice sculptures....More
