Canadians know how to make the best out of icy situations, whether it’s an impromptu game of shinny at a road closure or, as the case is in the far north, perfectly styled icicles.

The folks at Takhini Hot Springs in the Yukon is an expert at this and they've inviting participants to an annual Hair Freezing contest.

“Visit the Takhini Hot Springs any day during the winter when the temperature is below -20 C. We are located 20 minutes north of Whitehorse, Yukon” reads the description of the contest.

“Upon arrival, purchase a regular admission to the hot springs and provide a signed photo release form to one of our staff members, letting them know that you would like to participate in the hair freezing contest. Once you have entered the hot springs and perfected your frozen hairdo, ring the wireless doorbell and wait for our staff to come take your photo."

Photos are uploaded in the lobby and can be shared from there.

For every person that enters the contest, their sponsor Nongshim Noodles will donate five packs of instant noodles to the Whitehorse Food Bank.

By April 1, one winner will be selected for best man, best woman, best group and people's choice.
