Let’s sculpt a 20 ton block of snow. January in Breckenridge, Colorado brings the Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships.
We usually go to Breckenridge to see the finished sculptures. However, this year mom is not working as a tax preparer, so we can go more often. We watched the artists carve the 20 ton snow blocks.
When a team wants to compete here, they must submit a drawing of their sculpture and a description. These are displayed during the competition. Team Germany’s entry, Metanoia, represents the journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self or way life.
Mongolia shows The Happiness of Family.
Motherhood is the most invaluable intervention for the personal developments and skills of any animal/person in the world. The sculpture reveals the moment in which a mother teaches her babies how to swim. Estonia sculpts Human Space.
This sculpture from Budweiser is not entered in the competition. There was no drawing or explanation, but maybe… This Bud’s for You.
Mongolia won the position of two sculptures.
The Lion and Butterfly was being created here. Team USA Wisconsin presents Dia de Muertos.
The sculpture represents the holiday of Mexican origin from October 31 through November 2, honoring and remembering those who have left this life. Team USA Vermont presents Rhonda and her Recycling Robo-Octopus.
We loved all of these sculptures. There are many more on display. The judging Saturday, January 30. The sculptures will be on display through Sunday, February 7, weather permitting. We hope you can go to Breckenridge to see these elaborate snow sculptures. While we were in Breckenridge, we saw the horse cart.
Also, near the Visitor’s Center, I sat on this wagon.
Humans cannot climb or sit on the wagon, but I, Zeb the Duck, am small enough that I was allowed to sit here. We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks, love Breckenridge and hope to see you there to view the completed snow sculptures of the 26th Annual Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships.
