Forget sand castles! Ice castles are much, ahem, cooler.
It all started one winter day when Brent Christensen was searching for a new outdoor winter activity for his children. He experimented with building ice skating rinks, ice caves, and other ice creations. Then, Brent decided to build an fort in his front yard using only ice - he started by using icicles as the base structure and built it up into an "ice castle." Word spread, and Brent started building ice castles all over the country.
