SEE THE INCREDIBLE CREATIONS FROM THIS YEAR'S INTERNATIONAL SNOW SCULPTURE CHAMPIONSHIPS

5 posts in this topic

Sixteen teams representing 11 countries battled each other, as well as challenging weather conditions, over a five-day period to create incredible sculptures from nothing more than snow.

The competition awards no cash prizes and teams are only allowed hand tools to carve the snow. Each team of four artists is given a 12-foot block of snow that weighs a massive 40,000 pounds. They then rotate shifts over a 65-hour period to complete their creations.

This is neat, I didn't know something like this existed. I like the Rhonda one.

Why bulldoze them? Why not keep them till next year or until they melt, as an attraction. =\

Cool!
I've always wanted to visit an ice hotel.

QUEBEC EVENT CITY - This is the Ice Hotel of Duchesnay, outside Quebec City in Canada. It is entirely made of snow and ice. With 36 rooms, 2 bars, a chapel, a giant igloo and a super cool slide, it's by far the coolest hotel in the world!
