Snow sculpture competition: "50 ani Copa dl Mond"

until 30.12.2017

The snow is transformed and comes to life with the sculpture competition in the snow in Selva di Val Gardena. The competition reached its 21st edition and is an adventure in the form of creativity and originality, where contestants challenge by working a fascinating and complicated matter. The result? Perfect and evocative works, which seem to be to life. This competition has now become a tradition - it started in the early '90s. Sculptors and artists, mostly of the valley, who usually carve in wood, have fun for three days to realize their giant size figures in icy snow. This year the theme chosen is dedicated to the jubilee "50 Years Ski World Cup in Val Gardena". A spectacle that you can admire for hours, always discovering new details, carved in the slightest detail by the sculptors.
