Snow & Ice

by Kimberly J Tilley

Last Sunday we went up north to see the snow sculpting contest, which is held yearly at Black Mountain in Jackson N.H..  The sculptures are always interesting to see and sometimes fun to try and figure out.  It was very chilly so we didn’t stay long.

Next stop was at Loon Mountain ski resort. We ventured in and around the ice castle that was created. It was interesting. We would of liked to stay long enough for the sun to go down so we could see it lit up, but it was very cold out and we had to be elsewhere that night.

The icicle shapes were interesting to see. I liked that there were little hidden treasures to be found in the design of the walls. They made a tunnel slide for the kids…. but even the big kids at heart enjoyed the slide.
