NH Sanctioned & Jackson Invitational Snow Sculpting Competition

The 22nd New Hampshire Sanctioned & Jackson Invitational Snow Sculpting Competition!
The above photo is in memory of one of our beloved sculptors Dick Devellian who we honor this year… Dick “until we meet again!” There will be a blank cylinder throughout the event for our sculptors to gather at the end of the event and collectively sculpt a tribute to Dick!
This Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce event will be held at Great Glen Trails/Mt. Washington Auto Road again this year. This fabulous location offers guests/visitors not only great cross country skiing, tubing, snow coach rides but creates an incredible background for the viewing of all our sculpting pieces. Check back soon for lots more details as to all the fun that will go with this exciting new experience and venue. This event may rotate venues as the years progress.
The event begins on Friday January 27th at noon with teams from all over the Northeastern part of the United States. The team will sculpt throughout the weekend and finish at noon on Sunday January 29th, 2023. Spectators are welcome to view the entire process but welcome to return on Sunday the 30th for the finished products. See first hand how our sculptors take 8 foot high by 4 foot round cylinder of compacted snow and create incredible art frozen in time.
Sculpting pieces usually remain available for viewing for at least a week after the event giving visitors ample time to get coveted photos. Please be aware that weather is a factor and we can not guarantee how long the snow sculptures will remain. The sculptures will be lit at night for an entirely different perspective. We anticipate at least 12 or more teams for 2023 and a spectacular show! Check back often for more updates as this is our 20th Anniversary of the event and we will be sure to celebrate it with some exciting enhancements.
Bring the kids!
There will be scavenger hunts for the kids, and other exciting things to do. Admission for viewing is free but donations are welcome. Please note that cross country ski passes, snow coach rides, tubing and other exciting outdoor activities that Great Glen Trails and the Mt. Washington Auto road offer are sold separately. Due to space availability and staffing concerns this year we are not able to invite the public to our dinner or awards banquet but will be sure to post winners information on our Facebook Page and press releases. For updates please check back often.
