Burlington will be hosting the Wisconsin State Ice Carving Competition.
On Saturday, December 14th, over a dozen ice blocks, all weighing 300 pounds, and frozen through a special process to ensure the blocks are crystal clear, will be placed throughout Wehmhoff Square Park. The ice sculpting will begin at 9 a.m. and will showcase the sculptors using their hand tools to transform a block of ice into giant masterpieces, or what might be described as such. Along with the ice sculpting competition, Burlington will offer visitors a horse-drawn wagon ride, live reindeer to meet, Santa, carolers, s’ mores, a bonfire, and much more. There is no cost to attend the festival and it should be a great family outing.
The Mountain Top Ski Resort at Grand Geneva.
The mountain is opening for the 2019 season on Saturday, December 14th. It offers 20 downhill slopes, 10 kilometers of scenic cross-country trails, night skiing, snowboarding, and has its own snowmaking capabilities. New to the Mountain Top is the Burton Riglet Park, which was built to teach young kids the basics of snowboarding and provide them with a feel for the sport. It offers different stations with certified instructors to coach and guides the children throughout the course. Grand Geneva has some of the best courses in the area.
