A hot and sticky (yes, it can get humid in San Tan Valley, Arizona) July summer day. Executive Sous Chef Josh Nylin of Encanterra Community Resort demonstrated his chainsaw skills by transforming a 300lbs block of ice into a fish with coral ice sculpture.
Tip #1 Stay Away from the Chainsaw Tip
It is sharp and can hurt if you are impelled by the teeth side of it. As you can see, Chef Josh is wearing protective gear, eye protection, ear protection and leather coveralls. He likes to use an electric chainsaw because he has more control over the speed and it is less noisy.
Tip #2 Stand Away from the Shrapnel of Ice
Tip #3 Bring a Sober Driver
Can you believe it? Chef Josh turned the 300lbs block of ice into this amazing sculpture that is a functioning ice sculpture luge. The facility will be refreezing the ice sculpture. Then bring it back out for this evening social hour and pouring blue margaritas down the ice sculpture luge.
What a wonderful date idea. We had a great time watching Chef Josh bring to life a block of ice. Have you ever had a drink from a luge? If yes, what was the occasion?
