No, this isn’t the latest housing trend from Canada, but rather the work of a European company called Iglu-Dorf. Having operations in Andorra, Austria, and Switzerland, they use 3,000 tons of snow to make 12 luxury igloos every year on European mountainsides. The concept is the brainchild of a snowboarder named Adrian Günter.
Back in 1996, Adrian built his own igloo on a mountaintop in order to ensure he was the first to hit the slopes and the first to have the freshest powder possible. His friends wanted a similar experience, so he built a second one. The year after that, he built a third one and you can see where this idea went from there. While originally built in the traditional Inuit method, the company now inflates balloons, covers them with snow, and then deflates them once the snow hardens.
It Takes Roughly Two Weeks To Build One Of These Igloos.
