Breckenridge Snow Sculptures Celebrates 30 Years!
This Monday, January 20th, marks the 30th anniversary of the Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championships! Sixteen teams of snow artists from around the globe are gathering this week in one of our favorite Colorado mountain towns. Their objective: to hand-carve 20-ton blocks of snow into magnificent works of art! During this FREE event, onlookers can watch over the course of 5 days as artists carve sixteen massive sculptures, using only their hands & creative inspiration - no power tools allowed!

All week, while artists are sculpting, visitors can hang out in the FirstBank Warming Hut Exhibit, attend a viewing of the documentary "Ski Bum - The Warren Miller Story", and cast votes for their favorite sculptures!
