If you're thinking you might like to try your hand at snow carving for the upcoming Winterfest Snow Carving Contest, take heart. You don't have to be a professional artist to make a sculpture out of snow. In fact, snow is far more forgiving than most other sculpting mediums, and short of a total meltdown (temperature-wise, that is), most anyone should be able to create an impressive snow sculpture.
