Winter in the Rockies

Here in the Teton Valley they appreciate snow, so much that they are dedicating this week to a Snow Fest. From Skijorning (horse racing with skier in tow) to snow sculpting the town is full of enjoying the white stuff. The parking lot of City Hall is full of giant blocks slowly becoming other forms.
The first and most important item is a snow bar, almost ready! But those bartenders look a little young...

There were a myriad of plans, models, systems and tools. from axes and chisels to simple glowed hands. A few of the pros made grids and lines, some just dug right in.
Some folks like to hide inside when it's cold, some folks embrace the snow! What is your favorite winter activity?

snowhoeing! Of course I've been living in no-snow-land the last few years... Nobody believes me when I say I miss it :)

Well Colorado feels like no snow land right now, it has been quite dry. But I have faith in the spring storms! Perhaps a really big one will bring snow your way...? Probably not

That would be so much fun to see! The sculptures are so talented.
