Old Mother Nature is lending a hand and providing some true wintery weather for us right now. Many are probably feeling terribly inconvenienced but we’d like to offer a nod of the hat at the ice and snow we deal with every day at the ‘office’.
Just as winter has solidly taken hold of the Upper North West, so too does Lake Chelan decide that it is the perfect opportunity to celebrate! We will again be joining in the celebration by sculpting multitudes of ice blocks, and Justin will be competing in both the Single and Multi-Block Ice Sculpting Competition.
From Tuesday, January 11th through Friday the 14th you can see giant ice crystals, enormous flames and oversized two-person chairs emerge from the ice!
Don’t forget about the excitement of competition! Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be filled with ice sculpting competitions…
The excitement of Winter Fest also includes Sleigh Rides, Live Music, Karaoke, Wine Walks, Fireworks and more!
And did I forget to mention the 10,000 lb Ice Wall that Steve will be building set behind a 12 foot long Ice Bar? We’ll look forward to seeing you there!

Steve and teammate Aaric Kendall recently won First Place in Banff Canada at the 16th Annual Ice Magic Festival held at the the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise on January 24th 2010. It was a three day fifteen block competition in which 13 teams participated from all around the world.
The title of the piece was “Victory Dance” which won both First Place and Carver’s Choice. Also included is a picture of the view from their carving site! If you have never been there it is possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world.
