Klausberg Ice Games
Region: Tauferer Ahrntal
Ice-cold art, glittering ice sculptures and fantastic objects made of snow… These are the main attractions of the Ice Games in the skiing area Klausberg, which are a welcome change also in this winter.
During the third week in January several artists equipped with shovels and ice picks will mingle with the many skiers, snowboarders and après-ski lovers romping about the ski runs of Klausberg. Their aim: create some wonderful ice sculptures, which steal the limelight.
For that they have to work flat out, because they have to distract the jury and the visitors not only from the other works, but also from the unique mountain scenery, which is offered at the mountain station K2 at 2,500 meters above sea level.
Figures made of ice and snow
The international ice sculpture competition "Klausberg Ice Games" takes place for the 9th time on the popular skiing mountain above Steinhaus in the valley Tauferer Ahrntal. All in all the artists have four days to prepare 3 x 3 x 3 meter large ice blocks.
The artists have available only water, shovels, buckets, ladders and ice axes. The last day an expert jury chooses the six best sculptures, whose artists will get a prize money. In addition the visitors can elect their favorite.
