If the mediums of paint, pencil, and paper fail to entertain you, try the less-conventional material used in this competition: snow. In this chilly competition, 16 teams from across the globe (including Ecuador, Mongolia, and India) will descend on Breckenridge to carve intricate designs into 25-ton blocks of snow using only their hands and non-power tools. During the first four days of the event, revelers can watch the artists delicately chisel away at frozen cubes, and then for the last five days, browse the creations gallery-style. Though designs for this year are still under wraps, last year’s winning pieces included giant hippo ballerinas and a lantern-wielding viking.
