Teams of up to four individuals will turn 4′ x 4′ x 8′ blocks of snow into magnificent works of art near the Loppet Village. Teams with more than four individual members will be disqualified. Each team has five hours to bring their block of snow to life, after which our judges will decide which team’s sculpture is the best based on originality, creativity, aesthetic appeal, craftsmanship, and 360° appeal.

Detailed Schedule

  • Sculpting: 10:00 am
  • Judging: 3:15 pm
  • Awards: 4:00 pm

The competition is only $20 to enter. Additional contributions are welcome to help defray the costs of producing the blocks of snow and of cleanup, etc. If you register a team and your plans change so that you can’t participate, please let us know. We only have 12 blocks and some teams will be left out. We want to be sure all 12 blocks get transformed into something amazing.

Note that teams will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis as there a limited number of slots available. Register now to reserve your block of snow.
