Tundratown, Zootopia’s perpetual winter wonderland, kept frigid year round by the Zootopia climate wall.

Here you may find a plethora of winter sports and numerous find dining establishment, such as Halibut’s and Svalbard’s.

It’s also the home turf of the city’s most notorious gangster, Mr. Big, so don’t be a wiseguy… not unless you want to end up on ice, the hard way.

Get your art after the break!

Koslov standing watch outside of Svalbard’s.  You’d have a sour expression on your face, too, if you’d been knocked down from a major supporting role in Zootopia to a walk-on part with no dialogue.

Ahhh, poor Nick.  Oh well, hopefully he’ll be mended by the time we get to the Rainforest District.  For now, this is your ever-humble tour-guide, Merc Marten, signing off.
