Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championships

When: Jan. 25-30 2012

In the past three years, American teams have mustered only two third-place finishes in the free Breckenridge International Snow Sculpture Championships. Meanwhile, teams from Canada, Lithuania and Mexico (!) have taken first places. (To get a sense of how serious this stuff is, image-search Team Mexico's "Alebrije" from 2011; it depicts three mythological beings in one enormous sculpture.) Make the drive to Breck's downtown today, or sometime before the 28th, to watch the teams at work — five from the U.S., 10 from other countries. It's a lot cheaper and closer than the Olympics. — Kirk Woundy
