If you’ve ever thought of being an amateur snow carver at the Ely Winter festival but didn’t know the first thing about snow carving, here’s your chance to learn! Join Center staff for hands-on instruction on the International Wolf Center patio. You will start the day at the Center’s auditorium windows observing the ambassador wolves to gain some creative inspiration and get some basic instructions before heading outdoors to carve on the 4′ x 4′ blocks of snow.
If you find that carving is your forté, then join the International Wolf Center’s Amateur Carving Team for the 2017 Winter festival at Whiteside Park. The snow carving contest runs from February 2–12. Contact Cameron Feaster if you want to join our carving team.
