In January, Breckenridge’s International Snow Sculpture Championships will again attract snow artists from around the world, but you don’t have to wait until then to get a look at local artists’ cool creations. This year, Colorado carvers will host their own festival, the Colorado State Snow Sculpting Competition, just a month earlier as part of the inaugural Berthoud Snowfest. The impressive scale of the statues, which are permitted to be up to 11 feet tall and 9.5 feet wide, may catch spectators’ eyes, but the judges care more about creativity, technical skill, and expressive impact (how much the design resonates with the community). We’ll put our money on any competitor who carves a life-size Subaru. Wed-Sat.
