16 Awesome Ice Beards

While the ski slopes out west are desperate for snow, the Northeast just got hit by a blizzard. In honor of the storm, which The Weather Channel has probably named Thor, or Ragnbjorg, or something else Scandinavian, I’ve compiled a list of amazing frozen beards. I love ice beards. They’re the natural consequence of growing a beard and then having fun. They form naturally while skiing, climbing, or just being outside during a snowstorm. Here are 16 awesome ice beards.

A business ice beard. Grown on the morning bike commute. Used to make deals. Whoever has the biggest ice beard wins the negotiation.

The longer your beard, the more snow it accumulates. Win/win.
