We were very happy and blessed with additional help this year to continue this tradition and competition.
We want to express a special thank you to the Gatekeeper's Museum for offering their outdoor space, Truckee River Watershed Council for continuing to be our Non-Profit, Jones Corda Construction for sponsoring all ice blocks for contestants this year, Shines Photography for photos and fun, Leo's Electric and SnowFest for volunteers, contestants, advertising and much moral support!
Truckee River Winery's 2020 Wine n' Ice benefits the Truckee River Watershed Council, a local nonprofit dedicated to maintaining and restoring our watershed. "The Truckee River region is threatened. Fish: declining. Invertebrates: dwindling. Meadows: drying up. Human impact from mining, grazing, logging, population growth - and now extreme weather events - contributes to the river's "polluted" EPA rating. The watershed needs our help. We exist to transform its health and resiliency - so nature and humanity can thrive together." Spectators watched as 7 competitors sculpt 300lb blocks of ice into awe-inspiring sculptures. The Top 3 contestants will won an assortment of prizes. The Grand Prize Winner will receive a trophy, prizes, and more!
Always fun in the sun with Ice and Snow!
