Quebec, Canada (PRWEB) December 24, 2004
Work on the Ice Hotel began in early December and will be completed just two short weeks from now. Lead by Mr. Denis Cantin, Director of Production, the Ice Hotel Team took the first step towards creating the Ice HotelÂs 5th edition by starting up the cannons to blow the snow to be used to mould the walls.
With the help of some good winter weather, the first sections have been completed and the hotel is taking shape. Inside we can already find the ABSOLUT Ice Bar with its cozy snow alcoves, art gallery spaces and even a few rooms and theme suites. The dedicated production team will once again this year give us the most sensational product ever, complete with all the magic of a winter wonderland. For the 5th Anniversary, expect to see the most beautiful Ice Hotel ever produced in North America.
"My team and I are ready to face the great challenge ahead for the 5th season, but we will surely surpass all expectations,Â says Mr. Cantin. ÂWith the modifications and elements we will be adding, the quality level will be unparalleled. The 5th anniversary will be breathtaking.Â

The Ice Hotel experience is even more magical when combined with the activities offered by our partners; Aventure Inukshuk (dogsledding), Portneuf Aventure (snowmobiling), Catshalac (Ice fishing), and Duchesnay (cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, skating).
January 7 to April 3, 2005, celebrate Ice HotelÂs five seasons. An ephemeral and grandiose place to rediscover yearly.
