Massive Manitoba snow maze vying for world record

300 truck-loads of snow used to build maze near St. Adolphe, Man.

A gigantic Manitoba snow maze may be the biggest the world has ever seen.

The maze, located about 25 kilometres south of downtown Winnipeg near St. Adolphe, officially opened Saturday at A Maze in Corn.

“It’s been a huge excitement to build it,” said Clint Masse, who owns A Maze in Corn with his family and spent the last three weeks with a crew of nine building the structure.

The maze was created using roughly 300 truck-loads of snow, and features 1,300 metres of tightly packed snow walls.

And it’s big — really big.

Masse is hoping it’s big enough to break the world record. But beyond admitting the maze covers just over 2,300 square metres, he remained coy about its exact dimensions.

“We can’t say the exact square-footage because we’re trying to beat them,” he said, referencing the current Guinness World Record holder, a maze built in Thunder Bay in 2015.
