There’s not just skiing that goes on at Granite Peak, there are a lot of fun events to join in on or just watch.

Looking at a large ice carved snowflake. Hand carved from a block of ice.

Live Ice Sculpting just happened to be the event of the day. It just amazes me how someone can take a solid block of ice and create something so beautiful without it breaking apart.

The night sky lit up by a large show of fireworks!

If your into the night life, they also bring in musicians from a variety of bands and if that’s not enough. Well, then there’s the fireworks!
