Winterlude National Ice Carving Championship

When: National ice carving championship Feb. 5-6, Voting period Feb. 11-20

Where: Banff National Park, Alberta

During the weekend of February 5-6, 2022, 10 experienced ice-sculpting duos will represent the 10 Canadian provinces and compete simultaneously on a work of art made of ice. They will have 20 hours to sculpt 15 blocks of ice and create a piece of art inspired by the theme ‘’Olympic and Paralympic spirit’’, a nod to the 2022 Winter Games.

The duo representing Alberta will carve their sculpture in Banff National Park. An iconic location, representing some of the most beautiful landscapes in the province.

Not only will this ice carving spectacle be incredible to watch, you’ll also get to vote for your favourite provincial piece! Starting on February 11, all of the sculptures will be featured on the Winterlude website, and you will be able to vote for your favourite #Winterlude #BalDeNeige sculpture. The Winterlude National Ice Carving Championship voting period will end on Sunday, February 20 at 5 p.m. (local time). The winning sculptures will be announced on February 21.

Vote for Alberta and help make our province a proud winner of this prestigious winter award!
