International Ice Magic Festival
One of the highlights of the winter season in Lake Louise is the Ice Magic festival. Taking place at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise from Jan 22nd to 24th 2010, teams are given 3 days to turn blocks of ice into magnificent sculptures, which are then judged before an award ceremony on the final day. While it’s very interesting to see the ice carvers at work each day, the best day to attend is the final day when you can see the completed sculptures on display. If you are not in Lake Louise during this period, don’t worry, as the sculptures will stay in place for as long as the weather will allow, which is usually at least until the end of February.
