The 4th annual Breckenridge Snowflake Challenge brings snow sculpting back to its roots and onto the streets of downtown Breckenridge this December as a fun kick-off and warm-up to the International Snow Sculpting Championships event late January. Sculpting sites throughout Main Street and downtown Breckenridge truly come to life over the course of the competition with amazing creations, adding to the beauty and surroundings of our perfect mountain town. The Breck Snowflake Challenge is produced by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate and the founders of Breckenridge’s International Snow Sculpture Championships as a means to develop a new generation of snow artists. Last year, “Team Breck” from the Breck Snowflake Challenge, went on to compete and place 3rd in the International Snow Sculpting Championships! View Breck Snowflake Challenge masterpieces from last year's Challenge here.
Local artists don’t need to have prior snow sculpting experience to enter. Deadline for entry is December 8, competition begins December 9 and judging culminates December 16. Participants should view registration details at www.BreckSnowflakeChallenge.com. Or, call our office at 970.453.2200.
Visitors must check out the sculpting creations from our local artists after the competition kicks off Dec. 9 with completed sculptures December 16 and the following days after (as long as colder temps cooperate). A site map will be available at the Breckenridge Welcome Center.
The Breck Snowflake Challenge is proudly sponsored by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate, The Breckenridge Resort Chamber, Coors Tap the Rockies, The Summit Daily News and KSMT/KCMV Radio.
