The International Snow Sculpture Championships is underway in Breckenridge, Colorado with teams from all over the world carving out their creations in hopes of winning the annual competition. This year’s competition is the 27th to be held and features the best snow sculptures from around the globe.
The sculptures will be spending 4 days (January 24th - 28th) creating their best works of art from massive blocks of snow that are located in the Riverwalk Center parking lot. The carving is open for the public to view and it is very entertaining to witness these masters work their magic transforming a massive block of snow into incredible visual sculptures.
After the sculpting period ends at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 28th the judging begins with judges for the International Snow Sculpture Championships deciding the best of the sculptures before the award ceremony at 2 p.m. The public will also have an opportunity to vote on their favorite sculptures once the carving is completed. The public is welcome to view the sculptures from January 28th to February 5th.
This is truly a sight to behold once the sculptures are done completing their masterpieces. Just check out some of the sculptures from previous year’s competitions in this post. These teams from around the world create spectacular works of art pulling inspiration from all sorts of unlikely places including their country of origin.
This is a great family event to catch in Breckenridge and the weather forecast looks like it should clear up a little bit and bring in some warmer weather, making great conditions to stroll through the competition and check out the variety of sculptures you are sure to see.
