Simply Stunning Snow Sculptures

SIMPLY STUNNING SNOW SCULPTURES – Spring may be just around the corner, but snow is still falling in many parts of the world.  With some areas setting new snowfall records, this has been a great year for snow enthusiasts.

Snow sculpting has become a popular and challenging sport.  Contests are held all over the world, wherever there is snow.  Local competitions encourage individual or small team creations, while regional and national competitions inspire teams of 30-40 people working alongside one another to create snow sculpture displays that will take your breath away.

They will use everything from shovels to spoons and anything in between.  Whatever they can think of to carve, poke a hole, smooth or shape the snow into the form they desire.

Put on your coat and grab a cup of hot cocoa because we are going to take a tour of some of the best entries of previous years.
