Things got a bit rowdy in ski country last week.
An ice sculpture valued at $2,000 has been destroyed in Vail, Colorado. The sculpture was destroyed after it was kicked over by a woman on Thursday night, January 2, at the Gore Creek Promenade in Vail Village.
According to an official press release from the Vail Police Department, a 22-year-old woman from Golden turned herself in to police about a week later after an arrest warrant was issued for felony criminal mischief.
Fox31 News reports the woman repeatedly kicked the sculpture valued at $2,000, eventually destroying it before running away from the area with two other people.
Police generated leads from the public by circulating surveillance images on social media, which helped identify the “ice suspect.”
Vail Village sits at the base of Vail Mountain, offering visitors a quick escape off the mountain. The cobbled streets are lined with hotels, restaurants, bars, boutiques, art galleries, and specialty ski shops. Here’s a look at where it’s located on the map.
