Snowy Works of Art That Could Only Happen During Winter

Were you one of those kids who always made snow sculptures while the other kids were assaulting each other with snow balls? Or perhaps you grew up in a warmer climate and could only dream of what you’d create if you had the chance to make some snow art. Either way, prepare your inner snow artist for some of the coolest pieces of winter art ever sculpted.

We’ve gathered some of the most amazing ice and snow designs from around the world, ranging from snow castles at international ice and snow festivals, to unbelievable pieces of winter art that people created in their own front yards.

So the next time a blizzard hits and you need a little inspiration, you know where to find it. We’ve got just the thing to get your creative gears turning. You'll be filling your lawn with giant snow carvings of turtles and dragons in no time.
