Some of the most interesting ice art is found in the Art Suites. The suites shown are from the winters of 2005-06 through 2007-08. Each suite was completed by the credited artists, who may or may not have worked with ice before working on the suite. Of course, the hotel will be different this winter, as it is every winter.
