About Snow Sculpting

How did you end up carving snow and what is best in snow sculpting?

For us snow sculpting is like playing, but in a very serious way. Its great to achieve a good design and a beautiful piece in so little time. It’s almost a race against time and a competition to one self. Achieving every time the (almost) impossible and to strive for perfection. Snow especially is a great material because the block always contains secrets that you have to work with. It’s not just making a design and carrying that out but its really working with the material. Snow is also great because it is so massive and so tender at the same time. An other great aspect about the competitions is the spirit of all the teams. The contact with the other artists and the competitive, but at the same time very friendly and open vibe makes it a one in a kind experience that we really really love.
