Ice Magic Festival

January 16, 2015 - January 25, 2015
Ice Magic


Experience Lake Louise at its finest during the Ice Magic Festival, January 16 – 25, 2015.  At this world class event with 20 years under its belt, you will experience the incredible talent of international ice carvers as they delicately balance grueling physical labour with precision artistry in a 34 hour International Ice Carving Competition. This year’s ‘Wonders of the World’ theme promises to be the most spectacular competition yet! 

Tickets will be on sale soon!!!

Overwhelming success over past years has required us to create ticketed viewing time-slots for the carving site at peak times to manage crowds and ensure you have the best possible experience and go home with unforgettable memories.  There's also a whole host of fun free activities available throughout both Ice Magic weekends as a bonus to your Ice Magic ticket!

It's easy - Here's how it works: 

  • Weekend Time slots for Carving Viewing from 9:00am - 5:30pm - TICKETED

        *Tickets are priced at $10 for adults, $5 for kids and Seniors or $25 for a family (2 adults + up to 4 kids).  Carving viewing slots last 1.5 hours each - plenty of time to admire the spectacular sculptures and marvel at the talented carvers

        *Tickets can be purchased online or onsite at Samson Mall & the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise on Ice Magic weekend.  Be sure to purchase your tickets early to avoid sold-out prime time slots!!

        *Please note on Sunday January 18th, the last time slot will be from 3:00pm - 4:30pm with the Awards Ceremony at 4:30pm
