Every year Mongolia hosts an Ice Festival on Lake Khuvsgul from March 1 to March 4. The average temperature ranges from -35ºC to -25ºC, keeping the lake solidly frozen thanks to the constant cold winds from Siberia. The four day festival involves all manner of winter sports and outdoor activities including, downhill and cross-country skiing, ice fishing contests, horse-sled races, ice rally driving, wrestling, and tug-o-war among many others.

Today we are featuring our partners here in Charlottesville, Mudhouse Coffee Roasters! Mudhouse opened their first shop in downtown Charlottesville in 1995 in the hopes of creating a place for free expression and enjoying a good quality cup of coffee. Seven years ago they expanded their business to include roasting coffees instead of just serving them. They now have 15 coffees roasted specifically for their 3 shops and 2 stands.
