Call it the end of Europe’s winter or the beginning of an early spring, we made a trip to Kiruna in the Northern Sweden by the end of March to catch the seasons last snow. Although it was just a few degrees above 0 °C, there was more than enough snow to build an entire new city of snice (combination snow and ice) in stead of just the famous ICEHOTEL. Actually, it might be an idea for Kiruna to consider as they are planning to move the city elsewhere in Sweden. The reason for that is because the ground under Kiruna holds the worlds largest iron ore deposit so if the mining continues, they need to move the city entirely or it will collapse.
