Breckenridge Snow Sculpture Championships Begins

Not only because I used to live in Colorado I love following up on what’s going on there but this is super cool and you should definitely check out the video for yourself!

Fifteen teams of snow sculptors from ten different countries have already begun carving what they hope to be the winning piece in Breckenridge’s annual Snow Sculpture Championships.

Each team of artists must carve out a massive sculpture from a 12-foot-tall, 20-ton block of man-made snow without the use of any power tools or colored dyes. The teams began the sculpting process Tuesday at 11 a.m. and 65 hours later on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. the teams must be finished with their work.

The awards ceremony will take place on Sunday at 3:30 p.m., but curious visitors are encouraged to come and view the process and the final products anytime starting Jan. 24, according to the GoBreck contest website.

The event plans on keeping the sculptures up for viewing until Feb. 5.

The Snow Sculptures are located in the area around the Riverwalk Center at 150 West Adams Avenue in Breckenridge.
