Sculpting continues through out the weekend and finishes at noon on Sunday the 27th. Spectators are welcome to view the entire process but to see finished pieces it is recommend you come back on Sunday the 27th. See first hand how our sculptors take 8 foot high by 4 foot round cylinder of compacted snow and create incredible art frozen in time. Sculpting pieces usually remain available for viewing for at least a week after the event giving visitors ample time to get coveted photos, however as weather is a factor we can not guarantee how long they will be standing. At night, during the event, the Sculptures are lit up giving them an entirely different perspective. We anticipate at least 12 or more teams for 2019 and a spectacular show!
