This is an interesting story from 9 News. There are some great photos of the snow tunnels that were dug in the past so residents could make their way through town as well as some facts on how quickly the town is growing!

Sunrise & Snow Sculptures

Albeit a hand numbing morning, that is the best time to photograph the snow sculptures in Breckenridge. I just love this event and seeing the finished product. What a fun time these teams must have working together all week to create their master pieces. Have a look at some of my favorites from this year, 2018.

28 Years of Snow Sculpting !

Although it is an awesome thing to capture the crisp, clean images of the snow sculptures when they are just finished, it was equally interesting to see the beginning of the event too. Watching how the teams begin to shape their 25 ton blocks of snow into works of art is pretty cool.  Here are a few shots from yesterday in Breckenridge.  The Snow Sculptures are located in the area around the Riverwalk Center at 150 West Adams Avenue, Breckenridge, CO 80424.

Thursday night is one of the best times to visit. Artists are preparing to stay up all night to do detail work and the atmosphere is celebratory. Tune in on January 26, 2018 – 6:00 PM for the official awards ceremony followed by a professional acrobatic Cirque Show.
