Getting around is a pain in the cold, but one Canadian city might lift winter blues by building an ice skating path nearly seven miles long.
Edmonton native Matt Gibbs is working with the Edmonton Ski Club to have a shorter pilot version of the trail ready to go as early as next winter, Susan Holdsworth, Edmonton's Winter City coordinator, told BuzzFeed News.
Part of her team's job is looking for ways to embrace winter.
His idea stood out to Winter City among hundreds of ideas proposed in 2013, and has been floating around as a possibility ever since.
Gibbs has even uploaded a detailed Freezeway proposal to YouTube.
