Defending champions of last years Breckenridge’s International Snow Sculpture Championships, team Mongolia is back with this years masculine sculpture fight.   The concept for this snow sculpture is from the legend; wishing a well life for the people, heroes wipe out the enemy’s force’s by destroying the 3 headed monster. In this sculpture the artist aimed to show the strive of life.  This team is known for their attention to detail and dynamic use of alignment that will be sure to dazzle the crowd again this year! Check out team Mongolia’s winning snow sculpture from last year’s 2013 competition.
