Another use for snow

The colder weather may mean the sculptures at the International Snow Sculpture Championships in Breckenridge last through the weekend. I drove up Saturday with my mom to check them out. Un-freaking-believable.

These guys are about 10-12 feet tall, and just as wide/deep. The detail is unreal.

It was crowded, but worth finding a parking place (the toughest part of the day) and walking around. A great apres ski activity, or a reason for a nonskier to make the trip with you.

You can see photos of the sculpting process here.

You didn't post a picture of the kitties? I can't believe it.

For anyone who was there on Saturday and was wondering, the Chinese sculpture with the guy on the horse and the two dogs was the winner. What's amazing was that that was done by just two people (every other team had four).

I'll get those pix downloaded and post them tomorrow.

The Chinese sculpture got every dollar bill I had.

Fabulous job! I've sent pix of that sculpture to lots of friends and family members. Hope you'll be back this season so we can see more of your work!!
