Shannon Martin

A World-Class Ice Carving Event

Due to challenges relate to COVID-19, Ice Magic will not be taking place in 2022. The January 19-30 event has been cancelled.  

The Ice Magic Ice Carving Competition is a perfectly magical winter experience that awaits you in Lake Louise where ice serves as a fascinating medium of artistry and architectural design. Watch incredible ice carvings take shape under the precise hands of an all-Canadian cast of skilled artists. 

The alpine town of Lake Louise comes alive during the 12-day Ice Magic ice carving exhibition. Walk through a winter wonderland and explore the magnificent ice sculptures at the iconic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise.
