PHOTOS: Mind Blowing Chinese Ice Festival

Harbin snow and ice festival is the biggest and best ice festival in the world. It’s like a Cinderella dream world mixed with an unhealthy dose of LSD.

Most of the ice used to create the sculptures is taken from the frozen surface of the nearby Songhua River.

To make the clearest most glass-like ice, some people use frozen deionised water. Apparently that guarantees a pure finish on the cut blocks.

So like I say, I’ll probably never make it all the way over there to look at those beasts, but it still looks pretty impressive from afar.

If, like us, you’re a big fan of all things snow, make sure you head over to Snowbombing this year with us and a bunch of our friends for a week of partying on the slopes in true style. More info here: http://www.snowbombing.com
