The Breckenridge Snow Sculpture Championships were held over the last 3 weeks from January 15th through February 3rd. The sponsors for the event included Budweiser and Breckenridge Ski Resort and there were participants from all over the world attempting to win the coveted Snow Sculpture Crown.
Our Imagine That design team was invited to help out on the Budweiser Clydesdales team and lend their experience to the competition. Yvette and Tom worked on the Clydesdale and Carriage display and braved the cold to help craft the intricate designs that would hopefully catch the judge’s eye.
With huge amounts of tourists and locals passing through Blue River Plaza to pick their favorite design a lot of local businesses profited from the influx of tourists and there was an international feel to the town as over 14 countries entered teams in the 23rd annual competition.
The overall winner crowned on January 27th was Team Mongolia with their Mongolian Warriors design. Team Catalonia came second with Team Estonia getting third spot. To check out more pictures of the snow sculptures visit our Flickr Photostream.
