Snow Sculpting Competition

Rutland’s Winterfest was a big hit once again thanks to many volunteers who helped make things happen, and the large crowds that came to enjoy the events.  With events spread out over all 9 days of Presidents’ Week, there is definitely something of interest for everyone and every age group.

Pictured here are three amazing snow sculptures from just one of the events that has been a big hit in recent years. The entire day is made up of teams racing against the clock to create a winning sculpture and take home the bragging rights along with a cash prize.

Carpenter & Costin provides the manpower, snow boxes and of course the front-end loader to create the large 4’x8′ blocks for the teams. We’ve set these up for the past few years, and especially appreciate when Mother Nature helped out with some fresh powder.

At the end of the day, nothing is as enjoyable as seeing the kids watching in awe as giant snow blocks are transformed into some very creative works of art, and sometimes even some of their favorite cartoon characters!

About Russ Marsan

Ever since I was a little kid, I remember spending as much time outdoors as I possibly could. Hiking, climbing, fishing, swimming, sledding, skiing, skating—you name it, I loved it. As I grew up, I began noticing that when my family and friends were outdoors, whether in the woods for a hike or in the backyard at a BBQ, they were more peaceful, inquisitive, conversational and adventurous than in their everyday work lives. My vision began forming way back then, which is to get kids, families and communities outside, enjoying all four seasons. Today, my life remains centered around my wonderful wife and kids, our families and friends and enjoying life in our great outdoors. Helping others enjoy the outdoors has become the mission of Carpenter & Costin, which is truly a labor of love!
