Register your team today! Registration deadline is February 8. There is no fee to participate! For this inaugural year, the competition is limited to four teams. If more than four teams register, four teams will be randomly selected to participate.
Each team is expected to create their sculpture within the specified dates. There is no restriction on what time of day the artists choose to work but it is encouraged that teams work during times when spectators are in the park. Teams are also expected to complete their work by 12:00pm on Sunday so visitors can view completed work before the weekend is over.
Each team must provide their own tools and equipment. Teams may design and use their own tools at their own risk and liability.Teams may ask competition personnel for mechanical (front-loader) assistance in moving large amounts or chunks of snow; call the Parks & Recreation Park Director at 507-456-3090 if you need assistance in moving snow. Competition personnel will regularly use heavy equipment to remove unwanted snow pushed into the plow lanes by sculptors.
