Skywatch Friday

This week's Skywatch feature is a shot I took of Montreal from Île Notre-Dame when I was there for the Fête des Neiges (Montreal's Winter festival) a few years ago. I am hoping to make it out there for this year's edition as I really did have a good time the last time I went. This year they are including a snow village as well, including an ice hotel. Why anyone would want to spend a night in a hotel made out of ice is beyond me, but it has been quite the thing to do at Quebec City's Carnaval for many years, so they decided to open one up here. You won't ever catch me spending the night in either of them, that's for sure! I get cold some nights just sleeping in my own bed, so I cannot imagine how I would survive the night in a hotel made out of ice!

To see more Skywatch photos from around the world, stop by the Skywatch Friday Blog. Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!


  1. Hi Karine! I'm doing my usual thing of catching up on your blog and I will start by saying how very jealous I am that you are getting your second snow! I am so ready for a good snow, but ready for the bitter cold to go away--There is NO WAY I would stay in a ice hotel either! :-) Enjoy your weekend and I hope you do get that chance to sleep in!!

  2. A snow village featuring an ice hotel! What fun madness! I'd be silly enough to try the hotel, but I'd bring jacket upon jacket! I can't imagine that the hotel would have central heating, would it?

    Stunning view in this photo!

  3. Very nice sky watch photo. It's nice to discover another Canadian blogger.

  4. Going to winter festivals can be so much fun. I remember one year when we went to Edmonton there were announcements on the TV news warning revelers about getting too drunk and falling down in the snow. Guess freezing to death is another danger of drinking too much. - Margy
