About Ice Stacking

Lake Superior’s weather froze just enough to form a relatively thin layer of ice on the lake’s surface, creating something very enjoyable to experience and photograph/video. The sheets of ice were flung towards shore as the wind blew in at 12-15 miles per hour, shattering and forming the pile of ice seen in the video. The ice shattering sounds almost like glass breaking.

Ingredients/Techniques for Ice Stacking:

  • Take cold weather @
  • Large lake
  • Using a strong wind, thoroughly combine the ingredients
  • Wait for mother nature to create effect with camera/video recorder

“”While the above ice stacks make for a lovely diversion, ice heaves, their bigger cousins can be far more destructive. Ice heaves occur when the ice on the lake is thicker, and the wind pushes the large slabs onto land.””
