Snow sculpting was the highest form of artistic expression during the Ice Age, closely followed by mammoth-stacking and saber-tooth decoupaging. Appreciate the art of our ancestors with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a day trip to the Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships in Breckenridge from Arrow Stage Lines (a $90 value). Choose from the following dates:
- January 30
- January 31
- February 4
- February 5
The bus departs from the Sports Authority in Greenwood Village at 8 a.m., spiriting its passengers in reclined and leg-roomy comfort to Breckenridge, which is about a two-hour ride away. At 4:30 p.m., the bus departs to return to the Sports Authority from whence it came. Both weekends fall during “viewing week” for the Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships, an event to which snow sculptors flock from around the country and world. During the event, five-person teams craft blocks of snow into ethereal expressions of cultural heritage or midnight reveries. Each 12-foot-tall sculpture is crafted with hand tools, leaving each team to be creative with carrot peelers and the melting power of love. Competition-goers will also have ample opportunity to enjoy other outdoor activities such as skiing or snowboarding.
