Day three of the Budweiser International Snow Sculpting Championships continued with more beautiful sunshine and weather.  Beautiful sunshine that is, unless you are an artist working with…snow? The day was spent with the artists trying to make sure that their creations didn’t have the same fate as Frosty the Snowman, and “simply melt away”. And luckily, the teams all know how to handle working in a variety of weather conditions. So when it’s sunny, they simply break out their tarps and sails. No, they’re not trying to sail away; they’re simply creating some shade to protect their masterpieces.  And now you know their secret!  (And yes, you can try this at home in your yard when you and your family are creating those snowmen and snow villages!)

This artist works on the top of the sculpture, in areas only seen from above, to make sure no detail is left undone.

All of the teams are making amazing progress.  Today we caught up with Team Lithuania who explained the deeper meaning behind their sculpture “Once Upon a Time There Was a Forest.” Check out the short video above and see some of the sights and hear from the teams themselves. And if you’d like to see the artists in action for yourself, visit http://www.gobreck.com for lodging and snow sculpting information.
