The Freezeway project in Edmonton, Canada encourages citizens to get outside and be more active in the cold with a conceptual skating channel that doubles up as a commuting trail to help people move through the city in a more enjoyable way. The cleared passage is designed by students and offers a scenic view of the city during the winter months.

Edmonton is known for having harsh winters that can often leave citizens hibernated inside. The Freezeway project aims to pull consumers outside with a disco lights and a conceptual design by upgrading the design of the city's snowy landscape to be more interactive and fun. Skaters can enjoy lacing up and taking a scenic spin around the 1,300 foot path in the midst of a forest.
