Here we go again, the sixth annual Great Snow Fest is upon us and it looks like we’ll have plenty of snow this time. One year (was it last year?) they had to truck the stuff in from the outskirts of town and the Ice Sculptures melted fast. Karen and I are also driving the shuttle out to the dog sled event again this year, so stay tuned.

Presculpt 2017

The conditions are perfect this year for a little ice-scupting: plenty of snow, clear skies, and cold temps. The crews were hucking their backsides on the ice pretty hard today. Click the photo below for a few more shots.

Keeping Ice Alive

It’s one of those tough weeks for our ice artists. I’ve seen it happen before where the sun comes out and warms up to the low thirties. The tarps are put up between the sun and the ice and smiles fade to frustrated frowns.

The forecast for tomorrow (judgement day) is 27° and some snow so hopefully they’ll survive to the finish line. Click the photo below for more.
