The 26th annual Budweiser International Snow Sculpture has returned to Breckenridge! Last week, the 12 foot by 12 foot, 20 ton blocks of snow were created in the Riverwalk center parking lot. The snow has been settling all weekend and the sculptors will start their magic tomorrow. Sixteen teams from around the world have arrived in Breckenridge for this week's competition. The blocks of snow will be carved by hand into works of art.
January 26th- January 30th: The sculptors will begin transforming the blocks of snow into masterpieces that will make your imagination run wild. You will be amazed at what they can create from the beautiful snow! The competitors will be facing the harsh mountain environment, carving until 2 p.m. on Saturday, January 31st. One of the most fun times to take in the masterpieces will be on January 29th, when the atmosphere is energized, and some of the sculptors are ready to stay up all night to finish up the minuet details. Don't forget to place your vote for the best sculpture for this year's Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championship. Seeing the final pieces will something you don't want to miss out on!
January 31st- February 7th: During this week, the completed snow sculptures of the Budweiser International Snow Sculptures are on display! Weather permitting the sculptures will remain standing until February 7th. This is a free event, open to the public. So grab some hot cocoa, bundle up and come out and see the masterpieces under the LED lights. As always, I am sure that they will be magnificent!
