Breckenridge, Colorado hosts the 18th annual International Snow Sculpture Championships. Sixteen teams from nine countries have 65 total hours to create these amazing, but temporary, works of art. Temporary because they melt. (Actually, they'll be bulldozed long before they have a chance to melt, but the promo piece for the event describes it as "an art gallery that melts.")
Day 2, Wednesday morning, January 23, 2008. See my earlier post showing the pre-contest setup.
They started with 10x10x12 foot blocks of snow on Tuesday. By day 2, some teams have progressed more than others.
Here is Team China's sculpture so far:
This guy is really getting into it...
Team Mexico shows off their plans to some visiting preschoolers:
Team Lithuania has the snappiest jackets...
The Lithuanians have their work cut out fot them. Note the small model sitting on the bucket at lower left. This will be a great piece of art if they can make it happen...
Something swirly from Minnesota? We'll see soon...
Another fine effort, partially done. Note the floodlights. Friday night will be an all-nighter, leading up to the Saturday morning finish.
Could it be?! A RE/MAX balloon?? We shall see.
And how about our beautiful blue skies? Great day to hit the slopes, just a block away.
