How does one dress for a night in an ice hotel? I'm very curious!

In Québec, winter temperatures outside vary from -25°C to 5°C (-13°F to 41°F), that’s why it is important to dress properly. The three-layer technique is recommended. •The interior layer (undergarment) must allow humidity to escape your body. Synthetic clothing or a mix of wool and synthetic fabric are recommended. Cotton is not recommended since it retains humidity. •The middle layer must isolate air and control humidity. A wool, flannel or polar fleece sweater is recommended. •The exterior layer must shield wind and humidity without affecting your comfort and movements. •Essentials accessories : hat covering your ears, scarf, gloves or mittens and boots (big enough so that you can wear thick socks) N. B. For the night, use dry, light and synthetic clothing which will not have been worn during the day. A very few garments are necessary to avoid being too hot. A high level of heat will create sweats which will then transform into humidity and will make you feel cold.
