A room with a view / by Jonathan Green

Because we have so much snow to excavate, we were given one of the outer rooms, with our back wall missing until nearer completion.

This makes for easy snow removal, and easy ice delivery, but the downside being that you are completely open to the elements. With an average -12 C temperature, and a freezing wind chill from the snow cannons working just outside, it does make for pretty brutal conditions.

BUT…we were gifted the opportunity to see the sunrise and sunset every day between around 09:30 and 12:30pm and were treated to some stunning views, which made it all worthwhile.
