DILLON, Colo. (CBS4)– The Ice Castles in Dillon will open on Friday, about a week ahead of schedule. Ice farmers have been working around the clock to get the attraction open as soon as possible.

Organizers say it takes 25 million pounds of ice to make the winter playground. When the frozen project is done, parts of the ice castle in a Summit County baseball field could reach up to 56 feet tall.

This year’s castle will include ice slides, secret passages and water fountains.

Last year’s mild winter delayed the opening for the Ice Castles. Ice farmers say it’s been more like a typical Colorado winter this year.
