This Artist Makes Incredible Designs With Just Snow And His Shoes

Some of our readers may be experiencing a “heat dome” this weekend, so why not take the edge off with this video of a snow artist who does more than just hike in the snow.

Snow artist Simon Beck was one of four artists that was invited to Stryn in Norway, where he found inspiration for his project.


His designs are majestic, reminiscent of the ridges and designs found in snow flakes on a microscopic level, but Beck is also full of sage advice for anyone who wants to try something new.

“There are still things that have not been done before,” he said. “I think my experience proves it. Even something really a bit mad, if you can do it a bit well, if no one else is doing it, all you can lose is your time.”
