Ice carvers await decision


Watch the video above to view some of the ice carvings made at the 2010 High on Ice Festival on Friday.

Internationally-renowned ice carvers are anxiously awaiting the results of the Single Block Ice Carving Competition.

It was the first carving event of this year’s High on Ice Festival. Carving began shortly after 1:00 p.m. today, and ended two hours later.
