The 2022 Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championship drew sculpting teams from the United States, Ecuador, Mexico, and Germany. Each team hand-carved a temporary work of art from a twelve-foot, twenty-five-ton block of snow. They were judged by theme, style, and technique.
Lights bathed the snow sculptures in changing color, adding another dimension. I took as many pictures as I could before my fingers froze.
The only thing missing from Roll Over Beartoven created by Team Wisconsin was the music. Love the beehive!
Another team from Wisconsin won third place for Bee Sustainability. Go Wisconsin! I grew up in Madison and caught bees one summer, assuming they would produce honey — in a jar.
Team Germany nailed it with their second-place entry, Float.
Team New York created Colossal Resurrection.
Team Mexico won the People’s Choice. So funny and ironic. See the snowy toilet paper rolls?
This is only half of the entries.
Stay tuned for the first-place winner and the rest of the competitors in Part Two. They are spectacular!
Have you ever seen snow sculptures? Ice sculptures? Ice castles? Are you ready for six more weeks of winter? I am!
