The Story Behind The Project
Hello, my name is Eric Villiard from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I’m the father of two little boys, Hugo & Thomas. And I am the proud founder of the Montreal-Made, Play Snow Igloo Structure!
I really love playing outside with my children…
A few years ago, after failing to build an igloo with the heavy snow we had just received early December, I got the idea to produce a honeycomb structure that is strong enough to resist the weight of heavy snow. SAFE FOR MY CHILDREN TO PLAY UNDERNEATH. Since then, I’ve collaborated with renowned engineers to conceive the structure here at home in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
At the age of ten, an igloo collapsed on my back and I was found crushed under the snow by my rescuing father. I’ll never forget it!
I think it’s fair to say that in my youth, my parents prevented me from building such igloos because snow can be dangerous. But with the solid structure I have conceived, SAFE IGLOOS ARE NOW MADE POSSIBLE. Plus, the kids can climb on top of it and they love that.
In the Summer we pack it with grass and in the Fall we stuff it with autumn leaves. Fun all year long!
