The award-winning attraction, Ice Castles, will NOT be returning to Dillon this 2021-2022 winter season. This is due to space limitations and construction their usual location in the Town Park.
There simply isn’t any place for them to go , with some talks of it moving to nearby Outlets at Silverthorne . The writeup below is from last year…
Sure, Colorado is home to several castles, but none as unique as the ice castles that make their appearance in Dillon each winter. As one of the more photographed displays Colorado offers, the ice castles allow visitors the opportunity to walk inside and around 25 million pounds of ice. There’s an ever-changing colored display of twinkling LED lights embedded into the ice itself.
The display features ice-carved tunnels, flowing fountains, ice slides, and what seem to be endless towers of ice mixed with colorful lights, and unique features called frozen thrones. The ice castles experience is built using hundreds of thousands of icicles, all of which are hand-placed by professional ice artists.
A visit at night is truly special when the bright colors light up the ice and the ice castles seem to glow in the dark.
