US SNOW SCULPTING WEEK
US Snow Sculpting Week celebrates a tradition of art and beauty in ice. For over 20 years, the US National Snow Sculpting Competition has kicked off Winter Fest at Lake Geneva, WI. Over four days, teams from across the country whittle and shape their creations from 9 feet tall blocks of snow in the form of cylinders that are 8 feet in diameter.
As the largest snow sculpting event in the United States, the week attracts talented artists to a fleet of media. Their breath-taking and colossal pieces are often a mix of geometric architecture and whimsical fun. As the judging takes place and the winners are selected, the festival opens. The festival is just getting into full gear with magnificent icy art on display for the duration.

Share your experiences with others while you’re out enjoying the adventure. If you’re not able to attend but live where the snow flies, build your own ice and snow sculpture. Put it on display for neighbors and friends to see. Explore the physics of snow and ice while enjoying the brisk outdoors.
