Energy from the sun and earth
It definitely makes one wonder how this grand sized cooler maintains cool in -5 degrees Celsius all-year-round. The city of Kemi follows the guidelines of the environmental standard ISO 14001:2015 and will by the end of this decade have a solid environmental policy and programme. SnowCastle Resort has taken into consideration the sustainability. The resort gets part of it´s energy from the sun, as the biggest solar plant in the area is located on the roof of the main building. Other part comes from the resort´s geothermal heating and cooling systems. This is a sustainable and a cost effective way to produce energy. Main building was designed to recycle as much as possible and the waste heat for example is colllected and used to heat the water.

The SnowHotel operating during winter months has also gained success in the awards and the IceRestaurant365, operating now year-round, is one of the 3 most extra ordinary restaurants where to dine in 2019 by Forbes.
