It will be an exciting week in Breckenridge as the snow sculpting gets underway tomorrow. Snow sculptors from around the world will descend on Breckenridge and amaze the crowds with the transformation of blocks of ice into works of art. Last year, 16 teams from 10 countries turned Breckenridge into an outdoor art gallery in just 65 hours!
This will be the 26th year of the international competition, this year sponsored by Budweiser and presented by hometown Toyota Stores. Sixteen teams, comprised of four people each, from 12 countries including Germany, France, Finland, Great Britain, Switzerland and even Ukraine and Mongolia to name a few. The teams will carve 20-ton, 12-foot-tall blocks of snow into stunning sculptures without the use of power tools, internal support structures, or any colorants – using only their creativity and hand tools.
There are also lots of other events surrounding the competition, including a Fine Arts Festival Jan. 28-31st, live music, fire sculptures, and other art & crafts demonstrations. Of course, Breckenridge is also famous for its fine dining and eclectic shopping, outdoor ice skating, sleigh rides, and more.
