The world’s most incredible ice hotels

With winter well under way, many skiers and snowboarders will be hitting the mountains for their yearly adrenaline rush. For them, nothing is more enjoyable then zipping downhill, run after run, until they finally feel the chill, signaling it’s time to head back to a warm hotel.
