On Wednesday, Jan. 26, day two of sculpting, I check out progress and talk with three artists about their concepts.

BRECKENRIDGE — The Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge is bustling with activity on day two of snow sculpting. Piles of snow everywhere as the sculptors chisel and saw away at the giant blocks of snow. They have until 10 a.m. on Saturday morning to complete their works of art.
I ask the artists if they are cold, being outside all day, and the unanimous answer is no. They are too active to be cold, just like skiers and snowshoers. Many spectators wander through, taking pictures, inspecting the models, and asking questions of the artists.
I want to thank the artists who graciously took a few minutes out of their tight schedules to speak with me about their creations. I’m looking forward to getting back out there again tomorrow to see how things are progressing.
