Snow Sculpture Festival

Every year in January, international artists create “Winter Art” - fascinating sculptures of snow and ice - in San Vigilio di Marebbe

Every year artists from different countries meet in San Vigilio in the Val Badia valley and - one week later - in San Candido in Alta Pusteria on the occasion of the International Snow Festival. The pieces of art can be admired until the end of the winter season, when they start melting.

During this event artists create very special pieces of art out of huge pressed snow cubes of 3x3x3 metres. The tools the artists use to work these snow cubes are hammer, chisels and saw, the 10 teams have three days to complete them. Afterwards the sculptures are rated and also illuminated in the evenings. Worth seeing!
