Not that i have ever seen??


I know you used to be able and watch totem poles being carver, soapstone being carved.


I know once a year snow sculptures are made at a lot of colder area festivals. Maybe in montreal during thier winter festival...where they make the ice hotel.


A few year ago fort QuAppelle sask had an ice castle during thier winter festaval...but it has been warm lately...so I don't know??

I suppose if you've always lived there, you get used to it (but I'd rather not test that theory
