For a number of years during the Winnipeg winter there has been the Mutual Ice Trail along the Assiniboine and Red Rivers. Along with the ice trail there has been a competition each year to construct warming huts to be placed along the ice trail. Some of these warming huts work better than others with some simply being flights of fancy to let the creators' imagination run wild.

There were 170 submissions for this year's warming hut competition and while HugMug didn't win it is serving its purpose out along the ice trail.

Students at Mennonite Brethren Collegiate Institute designed and built the Hug Mug, a hut in the shape of a giant mug, complete with marshmallows.

In the words of the students... work, play, story, song... and a warming mug of hot choco. All are richer and more meaningful when shared with others. HugMug is an invitation to celebrate the moments of our lives with those around us, as well as the hope that what we have will spill over in abundance to those in need.

As it is a warming hut, do I assume there is some form of heating within the 'hut'? This is a find piece of work and one wonders what the other 169 were like! Are they spaced far apart and what won?

Here is a site that will give you some idea of the warming huts over the years along the Mutual Ice Trail along the Red and Assiniboine Rivers.

Jan I guess anywhere out of your wind chill would be warming, what a novel idea.
