Saas-Fee hosts Snowboard World Cup start

Saas-Fee hosts Snowboard World Cup start People thinking of taking a ski holiday in Kitzbuhel will be delighted to hear that there is now another reason to visit the Austrian resort.

A hotel made entirely of ice has been built at the resort, with an igloo lounge, a church and a children's fun park all thrown in as well.

The hotel can sleep up to 24 people and comes complete with an ice restaurant and plenty of ice sculptures, making ski holidays in Kitzbuhel an even more magical experience than previously.

Ice sculptors have been working overtime to get the hotel looking the part, with furniture meticulously carved and each room coming complete with its own works of art.

The lounge has been fitted with a special lighting system that creates a wonderful mood for people who want to relax while enjoying a ski holiday in Kitzbuhel.

The ice hotel is due to open in December 2006 and does not plan to close its doors again until the end of March 2007.
