You Gotta See This Enchanted Ice Palace Located Four Hours from Boise
If you feel the overwhelming urge to belt out "Let it Go" when you step inside, we're not going to judge you!
Over the weekend, I couldn't help but laugh when I saw a meme describing the two types of people in winter. You're either Lucky from 101 Dalmatians complaining about how your tail is froze, your nose is froze, your ears are froze and your toes are froze (this is totally Marco by the way) or you're Elsa, proudly proclaiming "the cold never bothered me anyway."
If you're more of an Elsa, it might be time to load up your sleigh and take the family to quite possibly the most enchanted winter experience in Eastern Idaho! Owned, operated and built by the Youngstrom family, you'll find the Labelle Lake Ice Palace towering high into the sky in Rigby.
The winter wonderland invited guests to walk through landscape of ice sculptures, complete with twists, turns, tunnels and lights. In addition to the ice sculptures, Labelle Lake Ice Palace also gives you the opportunity to take 5-7 minute sleigh ride to the resort where you can enjoy sledding (tubes are included,) fire pits and FREE hot cocoa. If you're kids are having a blast, you can stay on the hill as long as you'd like.
Throughout the season, you can expect visits from Santa, some of your favorite residents from the kingdom of Arendelle and fire shows!
Weather permitting (obviously a structure like this really depends on Mother Nature cooperating,) the Ice Palace opens for the season this Friday, December 18. The rest of the dates for 2020 include December 19, 21-23, 26, 28, 29-31. Beginning in January, they'll be open Thursday-Sunday, with additional holiday hours on Monday, January 18 and Monday, February 15!
