People build a rotating ice carousel in Canada, in this awesome snow hack.

The footage, shot on Monday in Parry Sound, Ontario, shows the 20-metre-wide ice circle rotating on a frozen lake while friends enjoy a drink in the sun.

"It took our guests 10 hours of chainsawing the ice into a perfectly shaped circle, an outboard motor was then mounted a few feet within the now-free-floating centre circle" the filmer wrote online.

"The free floating circle is initially propelled by pushing paddles/sticks against the fixed ice, once a good momentum is achieved the motor is started and takes over,"

"Approximately 20metres across, weighing in at 500,000 lbs, 1 full rotation takes about 2 minutes...totally cool experience!"
