We have lots of SNOW for skiing and other winter sports but not quite enough to fill the 15 cylinders of snow for sculpting, therefore… Jackson moves the Snow Sculpting Competition to Feb 26 - 28, 2016…
Ski & snowshoe trails are covered in snow but it takes additional tons of snow to fill 15 cylinders for sculpting and the snow for the added event just isn’t available at this point and time. This temporary lack of additional snow brings with it an opportunity to move the event to a later date February 26th, 27th and 28th, 2016 allowing for more preparation and added fun!
This incredible winter Snow Sculpting event begins on Friday February 26th when teams from all over the Northeastern part of the United States will converge on Jackson Village and continues through the weekend finishing at noon on Sunday, February 28th. Spectators are welcome to view the entire process but to see finished pieces it is recommend you come back on Sunday, February 28. See first hand how our sculptors take 8’ high by 4 foot round cylinders of compacted snow and create incredible art frozen in time. Sculpting pieces usually continue to stand for at least a week after the event giving visitors ample time to get coveted photos. At night, during the event, the Sculptures are lit up giving them an entirely different perspective. With 15 teams expected this year the viewing promises to be spectacular! The event takes place in Jackson Village Park.
Jackson is surrounded by 750,000 acres of the White Mountain National Forest and has held a special attraction for visitors for over 200 years that has reached around the globe.
