The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature’s phone with today’s Groupon to Snow Village in Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau. Choose between the following options:

Today’s deal is valid from Friday, January 6 through Thursday, March 15, 2012.
Glistening amid the powder-cloaked trees of Parc Jean-Drapeau, Snow Village’s chilled layout reproduces the city of Montreal’s, from its ornate buildings to its famous monuments—in snow and ice. Ensembles of sightseers wend through the village’s bustling expanses, where a festive atmosphere is bolstered by events such as live music, children’s shows, and a frosty snow maze whose walls remain unyielding, even when faced with threats of hot breath. A host of activities including snowshoe hiking and evening dance parties hosted by guest DJs (not included with today’s deal) render cheeks rosy while staving off cases of midwinter ennui. The snowy edifices glisten in the winter sun throughout the day, and evening outings metamorphose into magic-laced excursions thanks to dramatic architectural light effects and brushes against the beards of vacationing wizards. Though not included in today’s Groupon, guests can snuggle into a fur-covered ice chair at the Pommery ice restaurant for a Nordic feast before retiring to the Kube Ice Bar to imbibe snow-muddled libations.
