The resort is nicely landscaped with flowers everywhere. They have horses to ride and tours of the ice museum and a dog kennel tour with sled dog rides. They are into renewable energy and have greenhouses in which they grow some vegetables and herbs that they use in their restaurant. They are making use of the first low temperature binary geothermal power plant built in Alaska and have several projects in process, including production and use of hydrogen and vegetable oil for fuel. We took advantage of their outdoor pool which is surrounded by rocks and though not real hot was very nice and relaxing. They have an indoor pool and several indoor and outdoor hot tubs as well.
However, our favorite thing we did here was take the Ice Museum tour. We ran through the rain(yes, more rain) and put on big heavy parkas before entering the building as it is set at about 20 degrees. The main architect of most of the art is 15 time World Ice Art Champion Steve Brice and his six times champion wife, Heather Brice. It is just amazing what they can do, creating an ice bar, overhead chandeliers made of individually carved ice crystals which change color every six seconds to mimic the northern lights.
