Ice Magic Festival 2016 at The Lake Louise

Ice Magic Festival 2016 at The Lake Louise thumbnail

Winter comes alive in iconic Lake Louise, Alberta. Ice Magic Festival, January 15 – 24, 2016 is a world class event with over 20 years under its belt. Talented ice artists from around the world delicately balance grueling physical labour with precision artistry in a 34 hour International Ice Carving Competition.

Ten teams from around the world descended on Lake Louise on Friday.  Carvers represented the Philippines, Russia, U.S., the Netherlands and Canada. Each team was given 15 blocks of ice and 34 hours to work some magic. Jaw-dropping scenery sets the stage as ice carving teams of 2 create sculptures illustrating their interpretations of our chosen theme for 2016: Earth, Wind, Fire & Water – Elements of Life.

Congratulations to all our carvers for an incredible weekend.
