Friends turn snow drift in Saskatoon into snow fort

WATCH ABOVE: A group of friends did something unique with a snow drift in Saskatoon – they turned it into a snow fort.


The blowing snow last week created snow drifts across Saskatoon, leading a group of friends to do something uniquely Canadian.

They spent over eight hours building a snow fort out of a snow drift.

The fort is 18 feet long, six feet wide and four feet tall.

It’s surprisingly pretty cozy and decorated with chairs, a fire pit for warmth, a couch, candles and artwork.

“We’re from Saskatchewan, instead of complaining about the snow and the weather we acted like kids, had fun for a couple days,” Courtney LaRose said from outside the fort.

LaRose and her friends might not have long to enjoy their fort as warmer temperatures are in the forecast for Saskatoon starting on Tuesday.
