Ice castles returning to Utah for 12th winter
MIDWAY, Utah — Plans are in the works to make a fairytale wonderland in Midway again this year.
The Ice Castles at Soldier Hollow Nordic Center will return this winter season with slides, tunnels, and sculptures, all made entirely of ice.
According to a release from the Soldier Hollow Nordic Center, the frozen attraction offers horse-drawn sleigh rides, and new this year, guests will have the chance to “see and meet live reindeer and whimsical winter characters.”
Ice artisans will begin creating the ice castles in November.
“Winter is such a magical time of year,” Ice Castles CEO Kyle Standifird said. “We’re honored to be celebrating our 12th season in Midway and have some fun new discoveries and surprises in store for our guests.”
Ice Castles typically opens in late-December or early January, varying depending on the weather and remains open for 4-6 weeks.
The release states, “It takes a team of about 20 ice artists to build the experience using icicles that they grow, harvest, and hand-place one-by-one. The ice is embedded with color-changing LED lights which create an enchanting illumination at night.”
Tickets to visit the frozen fortress will be available November 28, 2022, on the attraction’s website.
