Gatineau, QC, Feb 17, 2011 — Ottawa is entering its final weekend of Winterlude. The skateway and ice slides will be closed due to warm temperatures on Thursday and Friday. Organizers are hoping to preserve the ice - and the fun - for the last weekend. The festivities always include gawking at the masterful snow sculptures around the city. The sculptors come from all over, many following a circuit of winter festivals that take them across the globe.
David Sommerstein caught up with one globetrotting ice sculptor at Jacques-Cartier Park in Gatineau for today's Heard Up North.
