Sculpted and Frozen

It’s not bad right now, and some countries are complaining for lack of snow, while others complain of too much snow. Here in Oregon we had our share of snow and moisture between November and early January. The mountains are covered with deep snow, skiing is quite popular because of the abundance of snow, both for the downhill and cross-country skiing. Yet in Breckenridge Colorado, they have another spectacle, which brings thousands of people to an ice show held every year. 
Here are some sculpted figures made from ice and packed snow. It takes days and many hours of hard work to create these structures, and the creators hope that the temperatures stay below freezing for an extended period of time, at least long enough for people and visitors to admire these works of art.
