The Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championships runs from January 20-29. This is its thirtieth anniversary. Sixteen teams, some flying in from remote parts of the world, created art out of twelve-foot high, 25-ton blocks of snow. I stopped by last night to see what they sculpted.
Wisconsin artists do know something about snow. Their entry, Quality of the Soul came in third place. Nice! Go Wisconsin! I’m partial since I grew up in Madison.
Nice to Meet You took second place in an entry from Great Britain. So cute!
Greed created by artists from Mexico took first place. I love the humor and the technical difficulty of the conical cup, supporting the gluttonous man, who eats marshmallows. Hilarious!
This intricate entry, Triumph over Evil from India won Artist’s Choice, chosen by the other sculptors. Beautiful!
There were several others that caught my eye.
Bride by China, Square Dance by Vermont artists, and my personal favorite Twister by France.
On Wednesday, January 29 all of the stunning snowy masterpieces will become part of a snowbank somewhere in Breckenridge.
Which is your favorite? Had you heard of the International Snow Sculpture Championships in Breckenridge? Are you a snow person or do you prefer sandcastles?
