It’s not steel. Man made snow is more stable than natural (snow). If you drive through the snow walls in the maze you’re gonna break your car before you break those walls. We had a feeling it was going to be the largest. But it took a lot of organization to get the data and Guinness people to accept it”, Masse explained
