Snow sculptors take to Northern Wisconsin Submitted: 02/01/2013
WAUSAU - For most us, temperatures like these mean staying inside. But for a few bundled up souls, these are perfect conditions for their wintertime hobby. They're snow sculptors. It's the 23rd year professional snow carvers are creating a work of art outside the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau.

"Hopefully, it's going to look a lot like the paper sculpture which is on exhibit in the museum," Michael Sponholtz of the Team USA Snow Sculptors said. "We've had a unique opportunity here for the last 15 years - we copy something that's being exhibited inside." You can see the sculptors at work Saturday morning. The finished tree frog sculpture should be done by the afternoon. The creations in past years got plenty of positive reactions. Cold temperatures should keep the sculpture standing for days or weeks.
