5° Klausberg ICE GAMESSnow sculpture contest “Klausberg-ICE-GAMES 2018"
The Aurina valley celebrates the 6th Snow Sculpture Festival from January 15th to 18th 2018
On Klausberg, the action-packed winter sports arena with the highest cable car and the sunniest slopes in South Tyrol, from January 15th to 18th 2018 will take place the “9th International Snow Sculpture Festival in Aurina valley”. The competitors wear boots and gloves. Instead of skis and sleds they have picks, shovels and ladders. And lots of ice.
At 2510 metres, in the breath-taking scenery of the Zillertal Alps, 10 works of art made of ice are formed from three metre high snow cubes. Under the skilful hands of the snow sculptors, a lot of animals will awaken from ice to life. Filigree structures, imposing figures and magnificent sculptures develop their own dynamics. Creativity, skills and burning passion for cold ice are the disciplines which are important here. At the end, the “Ice Kings 2015” will get cash and non-cash prizes. Also an audience award will be conferred.
