Ice Towers...

1,000,000L of H2O + Yukon Winter = Ice Towers. 

At Mt. Sima, These 30'-60' high towers towers made entirely of ice make for awesome winter adventures.  You can explore ice formations and caves at the ground level or head to the top via the Ice Trek or Ice Climbing.  The Zipline takes you back to the ground.  Spraying starts in November and by Christmas the self supporting structures have built up to a climbable structure.
