If you’re looking for a winter vacation destination that’s equal parts relaxing and adventurous, look no further than Breckenridge. This Colorado town is known for its incredible outdoor activities, and that’s especially true in winter. Set off from your Pine Ridge Condominums rental on excursions like snowshoeing or skiing. Make your trip even more memorable by timing it to line up with the Breckenridge Snow Sculpture Championships.
What to Know about the annual Festival
Every year, talented teams from around the world make their way to Breckenridge for the International Snow Sculpture Championships. These incredible artists will transform 25-ton blocks of snow into sensational works of art, all with no help from power tools. All they are allowed to use are hand tools and their creativity to bring their visions to life.
They have five days, totaling 94 hours, to complete their work. Starting towards the end of January, downtown Breckenridge will turn into a temporary outdoor art gallery. Get the full experience by making your way to the Riverwalk Center to see teams working hard. Sculpting is open and free to the public.
Once the carving week is done, there are additional days for spectators to view these towering snow sculptures. These works of art are even more stunning during the Grand Illumination, which features an ever-changing and breathtaking light display. After taking in all the sculptures, vote for your favorite.
