I stopped by “Ice Magic” to watch the ice chips fly in Alberta, Canada…and to find out more about the fascinating international sport of ice carving.

Ice Carving is an intensely competitive sport. Under strict supervision and tight time-lines, teams compete.

Ice carving is done using special, and very expensive ice blocks (at $100 each). Carvers use a combination of improvised wood carving and home appliances. You must watch this! They work fast and they take their craft very seriously.
