BRECKENRIDGE — Finally, after a long night of polishing the snow to a marble-like sheen, the artists put away their tools and unveiled their finished creations. Some are geometric and precise, other lifelike and organic But every single one is creation to be savored, because, as is the nature of snow, they are only temporary.
Weather permitting, the sculptures will remain standing at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge for the next week. Then they’ll return to become part of that timeless cycle, melting to water, flowing into the Blue River, down the Colorado and into the Gulf of California. All of those hydrogen and oxygen molecules will once again make it into the atmosphere some day, perhaps to fall as snow on the slopes of Breckenridge.
