The US National Snowsculpting Competition will take place in downtown Lake Geneva from January 26, 2019 - February 3, 2019. Each year top sculptors earn their spot in this national competition by winning their local qualifiers. Blocks of snow will be built on Monday and Tuesday before the competition and the team will be sculpting on Thursday instead of Wednesday, due to the extreme weather conditions. The teams will work together over the next few days, and often throughout the nights, creating larger than life sculptures. The artists will have until 11am on Saturday, when the judges will call "Shovels down", to complete their sculpture.
The public is invited to cast their vote for their favorite while the judges will be deciding on their favorites as well. Winners for both People's and Judges choices will be awarded at 3:00pm.
