United States National Snow Sculpting Competition


Today we took a ride to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin so we could check out all the cute shops in the downtown. We didn't realize that this was the weekend for the National Snow Sculpting Competition. We took some time to stroll down to the water and see all the entries.

Since 1996, the nation's top snow sculptors head to southeastern Wisconsin to compete in the competition. Each team of three spends three days and nights carving their art out of a 6'x6'x10' block of snow. The competition offers no cash prize just bragging rights of being proclaimed the best. The event draws over 30,000 people to the Lake Geneva Area.
