Ice times in the city
Vancouverites take advantage of rare deep freeze for some fun and frivolity
Vancouverites are embracing the winter spirit this season and having an A-maze-ing time. From some experimental snowman building, a little sport and a whole lot of rolling, here are some of the highlights.
Some built snowmen — and then imitated them.

Some lakes even took on a whole new purpose — ice fishing.
Elsewhere, others chose to use the snow like a lake. SFU's swim team took its practice outside.
The Vancouver Aquarium's otters took the opportunity to play (as they would).
And even our own Johanna Wagstaffe got in on the once-in-a-generation action at Trout Lake.
