The Greenbrier’s 2nd Annual Winterfest Weekend, January 6-8, will feature nationally recognized ice carvers vying in individual and team carving competitions.
As an added treat, the state’s only synchronized skating team, West Virginia Synchro, will perform on Saturday and Sunday. The competitions and performances are free and open to the public.
The National Ice Carving Association sanctioned event will be held on the front lawn. Sixteen of the country’s best ice carvers, including several Olympic medal winners, will compete for individual and team honors.
On Friday from 1:00-5:00 pm, five talented carvers will each transform a block of ice into their own creation as a thank you to our sponsors.
The team competition will be held on Saturday from 9:00 am-2:00 pm, as six, two-man teams will create sculptures from four blocks of ice in just five hours. For Sunday’s individual competition from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm, 15 carvers will design individual masterpieces from two blocks in four hours. See more photos of ice sculptors from last year's competition.
West Virginia Synchro will perform at 11:30 am and 3:30 pm Saturday and again at 11:30 am Sunday. Following each performance, the skaters will offer quick lessons and skating tips to children of all ages. The daily ice rink pass is $20 per adult and $12 per child (ages 12 and under) and skate rentals fees are $16 per adult and $10 per child.
