What's Happening in Summit County

Ice Castles Open in Silverthorne for 2011-12

What started as making an ice skating rink for his kids has turned into a gig for Brent Christensen. He made his first Ice Castle in his front yard. his children loved the cave, tunnels, and a huge slide with a bank turn on to an ice skating rink. People began driving by the Christensen's home just to see the unique ice structure in the front yard. The following winter, a Utah resort asked Brent if he would build a larger ice castle on the front lawn of the resort. Brent built the castle in 2009-10 and in two months the word had spread and about 10,000 people had come to see the "Ice Castle" at the Zermatt Resort. The following winter (2010-11) he built another castle in the Town square in Midway, Utah which is about 15 minutes from Park Town. Over 25,000 visitors came to see the ice castles last winter. In the summer of 2011, Brent began looking for a new location for his creation, and chose Silverthorne as a perfect location to create his 2011-12 ice castle masterpiece.
The Town of Silverthorne is pleased to announce the addition of the Ice Castles coming to the Pavilion lawn this winter. A spectacular display of unique Ice Castles will soon be forming on the Pavilion lawn. The castles will be made entirely out of ice with no supporting substructure. The castles are organic in nature in that they are not formed from ice blocks, but rather the natural shapes created by gravity and freezing water. The ice castles will soon begin "growing" at the Pavilion, and complete details including admission prices and hours of operation will be available soon at www.silverthorne.org and www.icecastles.com. Come back here and watch the progress of the Ice Castles being built.
