Drive by the Ice Park and it looks quiet and empty. But really, now is the time the folks are planning the next big thing for 2017!
Work is underway in the back lot at Ice Alaska to build a perminant sled dog kennel and staging area. We are happy to welcome Laura Alway and Calli Gavora of Golden Heart Dog Tours.
Their target date is December 1 to begin operating sled dog rides through the Park area.
“She had never known that ice could take on so many shades of blue; sharp lines of indigo like the deepest sea, aquamarine shadows, even the glint of blue-green where the sun struck just so”. This quote by an author of stories for young people sums up the beauty that is Ice Alaska.
Ice Alaska’s purpose is to promote artistic and educational endeavours using ice and snow, to enhance and promote international friendships through cultural and artistic exchange, to preserve and display in ice and other media the heritage past, present, and future of all cultures and to promote Alaska’s winter activities for the State of Alaska and to encourage winter tourism and other year-round economic opportunities. With the power to manipulate ice and snow, Ice Alaska fulfils these promises for its visitors every year with its creation of ice structures that delight every one of our senses.
The Ice Park will be closing for this season in just a few days as the temperatures begin to rise, but the dazzling beauty and magic of the ice will remain in our imaginations as we anticipate next year’s celebration of Spring. Thank you, Ice Alaska.
