passion meets endurance

Approx 1,225,000 lbs of ice is harvested for the event under extreme weather temperatures.  All are then scrutinized for quality control to ensure that only the finest ice blocks are used for the finest artists in the world.

This is a prestigious event for “the best of the best”.

Crystal clear art

It’s an incredible experience, where every sculpture is created from crystal clear water from the natural resources in Fairbanks, Alaska.

The blocks of ice are known throughout the world as the “Arctic Diamond”. Each block of ice is cut, harvested and transported by dedicated volunteers then sculpted by world class artists. Of course none of this can occur with the amazing support by our sponsors and community.

Only this many days until Ice Alaska & the COOLEST event will be open........
