Get ready to feel a pang of pure Canadian jealousy. This massive backyard hockey rink is the stuff Canadian dreams are made of.

While almost the entire country (save for Vancouver) currently experiences a cold snap that would devastate less resilient stock, here in the True North, Canadians are making the most of the harsh conditions by embracing time-honoured winter-time traditions like building massive ice rinks in their backyards.

Youtuber Sid Roth posted this absolutely epic 40′ by 100′ ice rink surrounded by fresh powder and lit by string lights hung through tree branches.

When reached by email, Roth shares with Daily Hive that the rink is located about 30 minutes from Ottawa and was built by his father, Carl Roth with help from himself and two brothers.

Talk about new #squadgoals.
