EAGLE RIVER -31 December 2014
Eagle River won't be able to build its famous ice palace this year.

A combination of poor ice conditions on Silver Lake and lack of time are to blame.
Eagle River Area Fire Chief Patrick Weber says they've run out of time to build before the snowmobile races, especially if they waited a week for a colder forecast. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A winter tradition in the Northwoods may not take shape this year. The Eagle River Ice Castle might not get built on schedule, or even at all. One reason is the recent snowfall. Another is the higher than normal temperatures. The wet heavy snow we received last week is keeping the ice on Dollar Lake from thickening.
"Out on the lake where we normally cut the ice, we've got about seven inches of solid ice," said Eagle River Fire Chief Patrick Weber. "We need twelve inches. We've got three inches of water trapped under the snow right now, and the snow depths vary out there anywhere from maybe two or three inches up to four or five inches."
The ice castle is traditionally built between Christmas and New Year's. That's when more volunteers are available to help build. It's usually built before the Vintage Snowmobile Derby. But if the weather cooperates, the castle could be built the weekend of the derby.
"If the weather does cooperate enough that we would get thick enough ice, we would have to have the ice off by Saturday, and then try to work throughout the week with what limited people we'd have," said Weber.
The Ice Castle has been a tradition for more than 80 years. However, it did not get built in 2012 or 2013. The Ice Castle did make a comeback last year.

Eagle Rivers annual ice castle construction has been a community tradition for nearly eighty years! Over 3,000 ten-inch ice blocks are cut from a local lake using antique ice equipment, trucked to town, and placed and sculpted into a breathtaking new design every year! Located on a major snowmobile trail through Eagle River, everyone stops to have their picture taken in front of the Ice Castle!
