How the Experts Build a Snow Man
Their big, fancy snow sculptures take a lot of work, but you can copy them on a smaller scale in your yard.
By Carol Ennis
BUILDING a snow giant like this one is a real construction job that crews of students tackle every winter at Dartmouth College for the school’s Winter Carnival. They begin by erecting a framework around which the statue is molded. A separate scaffold gives working platforms at several levels. Snow mixed with water forms slush for shaping the statue. The job takes the crew about three weeks of spare-time work.
For your yard this winter, you can build a small version of this Alpinist and his horn. If the scale is modest, the statue won’t be as much work.
