GM’s Winter Park in Toronto features icy Camaro
Toronto, Ontario – General Motors has opened its Olympic-themed GM Winter Park, in conjunction with the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, which includes a replica of Chevrolet’s new Camaro concept rendered entirely in ice.
The exhibit contains several super-sized athlete ice carvings, depicting Olympic events such as alpine skiing, hockey, luge, bobsled, curling and figure skating. The park also has a jumbo viewing screen that broadcasts a live CBC feed and daily Olympic highlights from Turin during the Auto Show.
GM estimates that it took 250 hours and 11,793 kg (26,000 lbs) of ice to construct the Camaro. The GM Winter Park is a free interactive attraction located at Roundhouse Park, just south of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre where the Canadian International Auto Show is held. It is open from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. until February 26.
