The 18th annual Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championships begin on Tuesday, January 22, 2008.
Teams from nine countries will compete. They get 65 hours to carve a 10'x10'x12' block of snow into a beautiful work of art. Carving starts Tuesday, goes all day Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and then all night on Friday night, ending at 10am Saturday.
These blocks of snow were built over several days last week. Local residents helped stomp the snow into wood forms, which are then removed.
Sixteen teams from none countries will compete.
This is a lonely block on the Blue River Plaza on Main Street, a short walk from where the rest of the blocks are. I don't yet know who will carve this one.
