Join us for Breckenridge’s world-renowned International Snow Sculpture Championships coming January 23rd until February 1st. With decades of snow sculpting heritage here in Breckenridge, we can truly say it never gets old! The sculptures inspire a childlike wonder.

Each team consists of 5-7 members who work around the clock, using only hand tools, during the allotted time to complete their sculptures by the deadline at which time all work must cease. Watching them evolve is an experience like no other.

Major Changes

One thing is certain, we’re not alone, we’re all in this global pandemic together. For Breckenridge, a resort community who depends tremendously on our visitors, we are definitely feeling the effects of Stay at Home orders.
