Winter Festival snow sculpture construction underway

The sculptures currently built include an eagle next to the Rotary Museum across the street from McDonald’s and dancing polar bears at the Art Hauser Centre. A sculpture will also be going up near the Victoria Hospital that will say “hope,” to honour the frontline healthcare workers and hospital staff.

Once they’re all finished Erickson said they’ll put the locations on their website.

Sylvestre told paNOW he has been carving snow sculptures for the Winter Festival for around 10 years but has been carving his whole life.

He added the sculptures take him eight to 10 hours to complete and he uses a shovel and a machete to carve the snow. Even though it’s a long process, Sylvestre said it doesn’t feel like work.

“I enjoy carving,” he said. “Maybe like 27 years I’ve been carving stuff like this and before that I did paintings and stuff like that.”

He added he’s heard plenty of positive feedback on his art pieces thus far and the extreme cold temperatures the P.A. area has experienced are the ideal climate to complete them in.

“When you’re moving you don’t get cold but when you stand around like this it starts to get cold,” he said.
