Amazing underground chamber with giant ice slides that never melt


These are the stunning images which capture the breathtaking beauty of a new world discovered in an ice chasm beneath the Rocky Mountains.
The cave, called Booming Ice Chasm, was named for it's incredible acoustics - as falling rocks crash and 'boom' when they tumble down the 140 metre deep cave.
The crystal clear ice is several meters thick - and explorers say navigating across it makes them feel like they are flying.

The cave has unique acoustics as falling rocks crash and boom when they tumble down the 140 metre deep cave, making it hard to converse.

Water dripping into the cave's entrance causes a huge ice slide to form, which explorers say is treacherous as the ice is crystal clear and difficult to navigate.
As melting snow and rainwater trickle down the cave entrance, it is transformed into an amazing natural frozen water slide.
Explorers say navigating across the crystal clear ice gives them a feeling of flying as they become disoriented.
