One of the artists prepares to resume snow carving at the 2014 Budweiser International Snow Sculpting Championships

The artists reconvened at the Riverwalk Center this morning to start day two of the Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships.  Once again Mother Nature provided an idyllic setting with crisp cool air and rays of sunshine.  The sculptures have begun to take shape after a day of snow carving, and crowds gathered to watch the artists at work.

New to Breckenridge this year is a second team of artists from Mongolia, enjoying their first visit to the competition.  We got a chance to catch up with Team Mongolia, as they made steady progress on their sculpture “Mother Land”, depicting two fighting dinosaurs.  Mongolia, along with all the other teams, will have a night out on the town tonight in what is known as the “Dine Around”.  The “Dine Around” is hosted by local restaurants that provide dinner to each of the teams, allowing them to enjoy a break from the action before they push through the next few days to finish on Saturday.

It's all in the details, as this sculptor polishes and refines his creation.

Check out the short video above to catch up on today’s action, and make plans now to visit Breckenridge to see the event in person.  Visit http://www.gobreck.com for lodging and snow sculpting information, and before you know it, you’ll be standing in the middle of this winter wonderland!
