Boyne City’s Ever-Changing Ice Sculpture

Every winter, water dripping out of a vertical pipe creates a dynamic ice sculpture shaped by the cold winds that tear across Lakes Michigan and Charlevoix in the northwest corner of Lower Michigan.

The ice appears blue and white, creating as many shapes as the clouds. Its appearance is as unpredictable as the frigid winter elements that craft it. The best shapes seem to form after a warm snap, right before the temperatures return to sub-freezing.
