The wait is over for the opening of one of Colorado’s most popular winter attractions. Ice Castles in Cripple Creek, Colorado, has opened to the public. The attraction originally anticipated an open date in early January, but colder temperatures made opening before the holidays possible.

Ice Castles has been bringing fairy tales to life since its inception in 2011. Founder Brent Christensen developed the patented process used to create Ice Castles while attempting to build a winter playground for his kids in the front yard of their home in Alpine, Utah. The project drew crowds who came out to tour Christensen’s frozen creation. Ice Castles has become an internationally renowned tourist attraction with multiple locations across North America.
