This article talks about an activity that is growing in popularity in Canada in which ice paths are created in the forest for skating. The motion/sound of this mode of transport seems ideal for soaking in the forest.
I really think this has potential!! With such a vast area with nothing but snow and trees; a simple ice trail running from point A to B with pop up cafe's along route could bring in tourists and help the local economy. i'd be interested in the planning phase with what medical stations etc. would be needed.
