Day 1 of the 2005 International Snow
Sculpture Championships in Breckenridge, Colorado
Evening before, carving the practice block Working hours the first day were 11am to 5pm Shots of all competitors' blocks shortly before the end of the day Late sun on the mountain; opening night reception Only one of the six loops remained on our practice block
in the evening, but it was frozen solid at an amazing overhang angle,
giving hope for our real sculpture.
