The Winter Carnival Snow Statues

One of the most exciting events at the Winter Carnival is the Snow Statue competition. For years students at Michigan Tech have created massive snow sculptures all around campus and their creations are magical! The sculptures take about a month to build and require a lot of engineering skills. Students use a variety of tools to create intricate details and the snow statue comes to life. Ben Ellis, a student who competed in the competition said, “It takes a lot of work to put these things up, but once they’re done they look amazing.” This event also draws large crowds of visitors from across the country to see what the students have created. Come and see them for yourself!
