Winter wonderland the making of the Ice Hotel( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imagine a cathedral-like structure made of 15,000 tons of snow and ice, ceilings more than 5 metres high, walls covered with original artwork, furniture carved from blocks of ice. Now try to imagine being an overnight guest! The Ice Hotel near Quebec City opens its crystalline halls every January to guests and visitors from around the world who want a unique taste of a Canadian winter. In March, the hotel melts away under the warm spring sun. The inspiration comes from the small Swedish village of Jukkasjärvi, where an ice hotel has welcomed guests every winter for the past twelve years. The documentary Winter Wonderland: The Making of the Ice Hotel takes us through the various stages of the building and management of one of Quebec's mega-tourist attractions, which has become an architectural and "natural" wonder
Beckie Scott( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If more Canadians know of competitive cross-country skiing, the likely reason is trailblazer Beckie Scott. In a discipline dominated by Europeans, Beckie is only the second Canadian female ever to reach the podium at a World Cup event and the only North-American woman to ever win an Olympic medal. She's also been very vocal about the prevalence of drug use in her sport -- something that proved to be painfully ironic at the Salt Lake City Olympic Games. The two women who beat her for the Gold and Silver medals were later disqualified from the Games for doping."--Diversus Website
Clara Hughes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most of us will never know the feeling of mastering one sport; Clara Hughes knows what it's like to master two. Among only four people in the world to win medals at both a summer and winter Olympics, Clara credits athletics with giving her life direction and focus, especially as a teen."--Diversus Website
Chantal Petitclerc( Visual )

With a fierce determination to consistently improve and excel, Chantal has gone on to become one of the most decorated and recognized athletes in her sport. In 2002 she again wrote her name in the history books at the Commonwealth games, becoming the first disabled athlete ever to win a fully recognized medal at a multi-sport Games."--Diversus Website

Susan Nattrass( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"At 50, Susan has had one of the most remarkable careers in the history of women's sport in Canada. In 1976 she became the first woman to qualify and compete in trap shooting at the Olympic level and garnered worldwide attention at the Montreal Games. She's won six world championships --a feat no one else has matched and has taken home numerous awards for her amazing accuracy and skill. She has the distinction of beating out Wayne Gretzky as Canadian Athlete of the Year in 1981 and that same year was also inducted as an Officer of the Order of Canada. In her spare time Susan managed to earn a PhD, run an osteoporosis research unit and successfully lobby the International Olympic Committee for a separate women's trap shooting division --- a dream which was realized at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. In 2001, as the oldest competitor in the field, Susan celebrated her 25th appearance at the World Shooting Championships with a silver medal. She narrowly missed the gold after a three-way shoot-off for the medals."--Diversus Website
The legend of Memphré( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Sharon Donnelly( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In a sport that requires skill in three disciplines, Sharon Donnelly's greatest attribute is probably not her physical stamina, but her inner strength. A three-time Canadian Champion and a Pan American Games gold medallist, her display of sheer will at the Sydney Olympics became the stuff of sporting legend when, bloodied and bruised after a nasty bike crash she pushed on and still managed to finish the race."--Diversus Website
Geneviève Jeanson( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This champion road cyclist is probably the most focused 21 year old on the planet. She's been described by teammates as the Wayne Gretzky of cycling and was once compared to "an animal" by a cycling rival. She first gained world wide attention in 1999 when she became the first Canadian (man or woman) to win the Junior World Championship time trial and then added to her record by the winning the road race as well."--Diversus Website
