Budweiser International Snow Sculptures in Breckenridge
Last week, the Tiger Dredge parking lot was transformed to hold over a dozen 12-foot tall blocks of snow, each weighing twenty tons. Starting this Tuesday, January 21st, the annual Budweiser International Snow Sculptures will kickoff. The competition includes 16 teams from around the world will descend upon Breckenridge with snow tools in hand. They will start sculpting away at the snow, little by little, until they have created a masterpiece. The one rule is that no electrical tools are allowed -- everything must be done by hand.
The teams at the Budweiser International Snow Sculptures will be carving until January 25th, creating gravity defying pieces. At 10 am on Saturday, the judging will begin. Make sure to place your vote for your favorite snow sculpture! Paying $1 dollar gets you a vote. All proceeds go to the Budweiser International Snow Sculpture. The final pieces will be on display until February 2nd. But don't wait until the end. They will only be available to see depending on Mother Nature. If the temperatures get too warm, the snow sculptures will be taken down, just as magically as they appeared. The best time to view the Budweiser International Snow Sculptures is in the evening. They will be illuminated in a magical way by LED lights, giving them a whole new life. Thousands of people will come to see the amazing masterpieces that are built during the week-long Budweiser International Snow Sculpture.
