U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition–Feb 1-4, 2017–Lake Geneva, WI  “You could roll a ball of snow into a morbidly obese snowman, but building snowmen is becoming a dying art. That’s why you should sled on over to the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition to see what marvelous works of art can come from frozen water. With the best packing snow available, these sculptors will create any life-sized object you can think. From Greek Gods and ice dragons to army tanks and ferocious wildlife, there’s no such thing as impossible in snow sculpting. (http://www.usnationals.org/)
