Artist Brent Christensen takes ice sculpture to a new level. Since 2009 he has created massive, LED-lit ice castles around the U.S. This winter, his spectacular exhibit spans two acres at Stratton Mountain Resort. Explore frozen waterfalls, mazes, enormous archways, tunnels, ice thrones and other formations, all created entirely by hand using icicles and water.

"It's magical," says Christensen. "And what's really special is that every visitor gets a distinctive experience since the ice is constantly melting, freezing and being reshaped."
