A fresh face at the Breckenridge, Colo. competition, Team Argentina has participated in competitive snow sculpting events in countries such as Italy, Canada and the U.S. The team, composed of just four members (rather than the standard four sculpting members plus one non-sculpting team representative) was accepted into the 2013 International Snow Sculpture Championships with the sketch for Caricola, which translates to “conch” in English. The submission included a short verse:
You are a shelter in movement
In your long journey you gather stories as secrets
but when the shore you get… you seem empty.
You come accompanied by the sea and their
which reveal what you are by nature
You were a treasure refuge
and time has released your dreams
