Dream Winter Vacation By Tia Belisle Winter in Lake Chelan Dream Vacation…..WHY?? With snow covered mountains and ice covered waters…… I grew up in Chelan, WA…so I grew up with the dream winter vacation that most people would want. But my dream…goes a little bit further.

~~~In 1989, a Japanese ice artist built a cylinder-shape igloo that was meant as an exhibition gallery. Work from French artist Jannot Derid were displayed there. The Artic Hall had several hundred visitors the first year, and one night a few guests spent the night there in their sleeping bags. The next morning they were “ecstatic about the experience.” This opened the doors for the idea of the Ice Hotel.~~~

Growing up in Chelan where we do have tons of snow, my idea of a perfect winter vacation was a little extreme. I had scene the Ice Hotel on a television show and decided to research it more. The experience, I believe would be an amazing one, to stay in something entirely made of ice which is also re-built each year.
The cost of the trip would be a little over $2500.00. This includes a two night stay with all the amenities of the hotel. All food and activates are included in the package price.
I hope that one day I will be able to stay in the Ice Hotel and take someone very special to me with me. It would be an extraordinary experience.
