JACKSON NH – This event attracts a wide variety of sculptors, both amateur and professional. In fact, many of the Competing Teams will be using this weekend as a practice run for Lake Geneva and the Nationals. Other sanctioned states holding championship competitions include Alaska, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, and Wisconsin. Each team of sculptors consists of 2 or 3 members, and in order to be eligible to compete in the State Championship, team members must be 18 years or older and reside or work in New Hampshire. The winning team of the State Championship will receive a trophy and an invitation to compete in the United States National Snow Sculpting Competition, to be held at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin in 2015. Our New Hampshire State Sanctioned winners for 2013 are Team Hall (Sandy Hall, Kathy Fraize and Eric Marnich). Sandy, Kathy and Eric will be headed to Lake Geneva for the 2014 Nationals representing the entire state of New Hampshire. The winners of the Nationals then go on to compete in international competitions offered by sanctioned member countries such as Switzerland, France, Italy, Japan, Canada, China, Norway and Russia.
Other activities planned for the snow sculpture weekend include a welcome reception dinner, with a bon fire (weather permitting) along with roasting of marshmallows, sleigh rides and more.
