Block Ice – While it’s often associated with old-fashioned icehouses, block ice still holds full favor for its cooling capacity and slow rate of melting in outdoor environments. Today, this form of ice serves as the chosen raw material for all manner of ice sculpting. In addition, many bartenders use it as a source for shaved ice and cocktail ice. Crystal Ice offers block ice in sizes that begin at 25 lbs and range to a maximum of 300 lbs in 25-lb steps. We emphasize dense, stable products and give you the option to customize the level of ice clarity.

Known as “ice” for its cooling abilities, dry ice is actually a solidified form of carbon dioxide gas. The low temperatures produced by this product make it suitable for extended hauling of perishable goods, ongoing cold storage, and specific scientific applications. Dry ice is also an everyday purchase for event planners, special effects enthusiasts and professional production companies. Crystal Ice offers dry ice in a range of sizes. Just pick the option needed for your intended use.
Cube, Crushed and Cocktail Ice
When most people think of ice, their minds probably go to the products that fall into this combined category. Ice cubes are the classic choice for cooling drinks at parties, cookouts and other home gatherings. However, plenty of people and businesses prefer to use crushed ice or cocktail ice for beverage cooling and other purposes. Our high-capacity setup allows us to meet any level of personal or commercial demand for each of these products.
All the ice in the world won’t make a difference to your plans if it doesn’t arrive in time to meet your schedule. Food- and drink-oriented businesses are acutely aware of this fact since missed deliveries can lead to service disruptions, poor customer reactions and lost income. However, the same scenario also holds true for event planners and private individuals hosting gatherings or celebrations.
At Crystal Ice, our entire business model centers around the reliable delivery of your chosen ice products. That’s why we operate not one, but three full-service ice docks in the greater Los Angeles region. Regardless of where you work or live in our sprawling delivery area, we aim to get your order to your location in no more than an hour and a half. We also offer an expedited option that lowers the expected arrival time even further. And rest assured, we don’t just dump our products at your door and leave. All customers can expect full unloading, onsite transport to your preferred end destination and additional setup or preparation as required.
A snow production is any event or setting that calls for the use of artificial snow. The freedom of this type of production allows you to mimic winter conditions any time of the year. Formation of fake snow requires three essential items: a device that turns filtered water into mist, a freezing chamber that turns misted water into snowflakes and a blower unit that forces the human-made snowflakes out into the surrounding environment. Today’s top-tier snowmaking setups can shoot out flakes in a vast range of sizes and levels of wetness.
In Bellflower and other locations where natural snowfall is unheard of, snow productions are favorites during the winter months, as well as in different seasons. That’s because you can use artificial snow to do such things as make temporary sledding hills, stage Christmas-themed parties or create the ideal backdrop for holiday photos or cards. You can also use a snow production to create the perfect setting for fundraising and charity events.
Crystal Ice is your local provider for top-quality snow productions of all kinds. No matter the size or duration of your planned event, we can generate the amount of artificial snow required to meet your needs. As an added benefit, our snowmaking machines create a product that’s free from the contaminants that often get trapped in a natural snowfall. In this respect, modern technology allows us to improve on real-world conditions.
In the hands of a skilled sculptor, an ice carving can take an endless number of forms and sizes. Many love these carvings for their artistic or aesthetic appeal. However, products in this category can also serve a utilitarian purpose as part of buffets or other food service settings. Whatever their desired function, ice sculptures frequently serve as a focal point and topic of conversation.
For decades, greater Los Angeles has turned to Crystal Ice as a preferred provider for functional ice sculptures and ice-based works of art. This is true, in large part, because of our long-term relationships with some of the most talented carvers working in the region. The high level of professionalism at your disposal makes it easy to sketch out your ideas, collaborate with the sculptor working on your project and receive an end product that lives up to your expectations.
