Western Canada’s Largest Interactive Snow Sculpture Exhibition is Coming to Whistler
January 23rd, 2018 (WHISTLER, British Columbia) – Experience the magic of Ice Kingdom! The province’s largest-ever snow sculpture exhibit will be making its way to Whistler for a limited time between February 3rd and March 31st, 2018. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 26th at www.icekingdom.ca, with early bird pricing for a limited time only.
The entire family is invited to enjoy 40,000 square feet of jaw-dropping snow sculptures. Ice Kingdom tests the limits of the imagination in using only the elements to create a winter wonderland. Children and adults can immerse themselves in a frozen paradise while exploring interactive elements, like snow slides and a maze. For a truly magical experience, join us after the sun goes down as Ice Kingdom lights up in full colour!
Visitors can also enjoy hot chocolate, bubble tea and snacks from popular Whistler food vendors. A licensed bar is also available inside the Whistler Golf Clubhouse.
A history born out of family and community values: The brainchild of master carver David Xu Rui, Ice Kingdom celebrates a 300-year-old Chinese tradition of friends and family gathering to create sculptures out of snow. The activity has a history rooted in family values, as adults would carve toys for their children during the long winters and engage in friendly competitions with other families to see who could display the most intricate piece of art.
Now, after more than 25 years traversing the globe and reshaping nature with his reality-defying sculptures, David is bringing his team of talented carvers to the Sea-to-Sky Corridor!
