‘Iceman’ Is Back With World-Record Goal

Roger Hansen started building ice sculptures on his own property in 2007, but last year he received approval to build an ice sculpture on Barker’s Island in Superior.

Hansen ran into big problems in 2014 when the weather warmed up and the sculpture he created came crumbling down.  He would eventually get back at it and build an pretty impressive and tall ice formation.  

This year, he says he plans to make the sculpture bigger and better — with the hope of breaking a World Record. 

“A lot of people deem me as an artist when they see this big sculpture here, but to me the art is in the technology and the engineering that makes this possible.,” he said.

Hansen says this year’s theme will be a European-style castle.
