280 tons of snow, 65 hours to complete the sculpture, 14 teams and one chance to witness snow transformed into art - that is the Breckenridge International Snow sculpture Championships.
The event has been named by USA Today as one of the "top 10 ways to celebrate winter."
Now in its 17th year, artists from nine countries will come together in Breckenridge from January 23 - 29 to present the most intricate, awe-inspiring snow sculptures you have ever seen. The artists will carve twenty-ton, 12 foot tall blocks of snow into works of art using only their creativity, inspiration and their hands.
If you visit for the first time or the 17th, you will be participating in a great Breckenridge tradition.
