Ice Drumming

Ice Drumming

Back in 2012, percussion group ЭТНОБИТ (Ethnobeat) transformed the sheets of ice on Siberia’s frozen Lake Baikal into a wondrous natural musical instrument. The recording engineer for this clip deserves just as much praise as the musicians.

The Ice Turntable

The Ice Turntable

Some folks in Latvia were looking for a fun way to spend a cold winter day, and decided to turn a frozen lake into a giant turning carousel. All it took was a makeshift compass, some chainsaws, a motorboat engine, and a little manual labor.

U Ice of A Ice Tray

U Ice of A Ice Tray

Cool your drinks with freedom. True Fabrications’ U Ice of A lets you make ice shaped like the Continental United States. Or at least most of them. The East coast was compressed in the service of serviceable ice.

Hockey Sounds

With Winter gasping for its final breaths here in the Northern Hemisphere, editor Scott Duffy pays tribute to the sport of ice hockey – sampling sounds related to his now melting backyard ice rink. Well, there’s always the indoor rink.

Ice Climbing Niagara Falls

Ice Climbing Niagara Falls

There have been numerous attempts to descend the waters of Niagara Falls, but ice climber Will Gadd decided to go the other direction, climbing his way up the frozen falls in the dead of winter. This seems no safer than going over in a barrel.

Icy Ski Resort

Weather photographer Marko Korošec captured a series of incredible images of windblown ice encasing trees, lookout towers and other structures at a ski resort on Slovenia’s Mount Javornik. Buy Marco’s photo calendar here.

Transparent Frozen Lake

Hikers in the High Tatras Mountains in Slovakia came across a crystal clear lake that was frozen solid. Walking out on the slippery, transparent surface was a surreal experience which must be seen to be appreciated.

Motorcycle Ice Drifting

Motorcycle Ice Drifting

You’d think that ice and motorcycles wouldn’t mix, but stunt rider Jorian Ponomareff proved just the opposite as he pulled off some awesome drifts and tricks on the slippery stuff. An oldie, but a goodie from 2012. Fun BTS video here.

Literal Ice Truck

Literal Ice Truck

To prove that the car battery it sells works in extreme cold, Canadian Tire commissioned a truck with a body made of nothing but ice, and then started it with a battery frozen to -40°C. Its body weighed a husky 14,000 lb. More here.

Ice Fishing for SUVs

Ice Fishing for SUVs

Normally, if your car falls through the ice of a frozen lake, it’s fish food. Not so for these guys in Russia, who managed to retrieve this Honda SUV from its icy tomb using brute force and ingenuity. According to the video’s poster, it still drives.

Skull Ice Bucket

Skull Ice Bucket

Keep plenty of drinks chilled with the Brainfreeze Glass Skull Ice Bucket. Its ample cranium hold up to 54 ounces of ice, though we also like the idea of eating raspberry sorbet out of it.

Homebrew Ice Truck

Homebrew Ice Truck

Driving on ice give us nightmares in which we both drown and freeze to death. But that didn’t stop this guy from creating a vehicle that can drive across fractured ice and extract itself from icy waters.

Frozen Lake Laser Sounds

Frozen Lake Laser Sounds

We would not recommend getting too close to thin ice but thanks to YouTuber Brice Center we will now most likely be throwing rocks at the next slightly frozen body of water we come across.

Ice Record

Ice Record

Shout Out Louds previewed the single Blue Ice off of their latest album to a select few fans and critics by sending them a kit for making a record out of ice. What a cool idea. (Thanks James P.!)

Falling on the Ice

Falling on the Ice

WorldWide Interweb is at it again, this time compiling some of the nastiest moments of schadenfreude on ice. If only the Ice Capades played out like this, they’d be so much better.

Ice Jacket

Ice Jacket

It doesn’t get much cooler than the Ice Jacket when it comes to keeping your booze chilled. It turns your favorite bottles into mini ice sculptures by encasing them in a thick sheath of ice.

Nürburgring Snow and Ice

Nürburgring Snow and Ice

Here’s something you don’t see every day: a Formula race car taking on the Nordschleife and Grand Prix tracks when covered in snow. At least they skipped the slicks and went with snow tires.

DrinkSavers

DrinkSavers

Throw a lifeline into your favorite beverage with this silicon ice tray which makes ice rings in the shape of tiny life preservers. Probably would look even better using frozen milk instead of water.

Hockey Rink Close Call

Hockey Rink Close Call

An ice hockey team in Slovakia manages to narrowly escape tragedy when the roof on their rink unexpectedly collapses under the weight of the snow outside. Incredible footage, and no injuries.

Ice Screams Ice Tray

Ice Screams Ice Tray

Part of us feels there is something terribly sacrilegious about turning an expression of unadulterated terror into a freakin’ mold for ice. But mostly we think it’s hilarious.

The Icy Brinicle of Death

The Icy Brinicle of Death

BBC filmmakers captured this phenomenon, called a “brinicle,” in which frozen brine sinks to the bottom of the sea, instantly freezing everything in its path. Fascinating, yet deadly stuff.

Designer Atsuhiro Hayashi’s ice cubes float polar bears and penguins on mini glaciers in your drinks, while their gradual melting reminds us of the impact of global warming on the polar icecaps.

Funston Fire Pit/Ice Chest

The Funston is a simple but dual purpose outdoor accessory. One container is a (clearly marked) fire pit, while the other one functions as an ice pit with a bottle opener on the side.

Polar Ice Tray

Polar Ice Tray

Opaque ice cubes are so passé: check out Jacky TC Wu’s Polar Ice Tray; the water freezes from top to bottom, removing impurities and allowing the ice to remain clear. Bonus: sculpture mold included.
