Every year three brothers, Austin, Connor and Trevor Bartz create some truly epic snow sculptures. Not satisfied with your more standard snowmen the brothers from New Brighton, Minnesota, look to create sculptures on a much larger scale such as the 12-foot-tall turtle that they have ended up creating this year.
Creating a snow sculpture on this scale is no easy task. First they must create a huge pile of compacted snow and then the sculpting begins which took them 300 hours in total for this years sea turtle over the course of several weeks. They have been doing this for four years now and as every year goes by they seem to get more ambitious and epic with their creations. Take a look below!
