Home ice used for High on Ice Festival

The abundance of ice in the Peace Region will prove useful for this year’s High on Ice Festival.

This week, local ice-harvester Jesse Forrester is collecting ‘natural’ ice for the high-profile event.

Ice Carving Competition Coordinator Niki Hedges says usually, ice is machine-made and then shipped into the city.

She says the local resource could cut the festival’s ice budget in half.

Meanwhile, there are some new workshops taking place during the event, which is slated for January 14th to 17th.

Hedges says there’s a ‘regional chefs and cooks’ ice carving workshop, along with a snow sculpting workshop for students from a local school.

Hedges says construction begins on the giant five-run ice slide on Saturday the 9th.
