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.

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.

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.

Following each performance, the skaters will offer quick lessons and skating tips to children of all ages.

Rebecca, I love these type events, they are so creative!     I heard it is a bit chilly on the East coast, this may help keep the ice frozen!

Rebecca,  There is always something happening at the Greenbrier.  I recently read a blog about sand artists.  These ice carvings are truly amazing.  I marvel at the creative talent of the artists.  I also happen to like ice skating. More truly talented people.

Rebecca, this is so beautiful but it looks so cold. Hope you are bundling up and staying warm. No ice sculptures here and I must say that while I enjoy seeing them from your post, I am glad we don't have the conditions for such art. Happy Sunday!

Jeanean, just returned from the Greenbrier to see the ice carving. Got there late and it was over. So started taking photos...problem was with the warm temps 50 degrees, the ice was melting and some of the sculptures were already broken....
