A great way to beat the winter doldrums, Chicago hosts an annual snow sculpting competition at Navy Pier. Not the same as ice carving, snow sculpting involves three person teams carving 6 ft x 6ft x 10 ft tall blocks of snow. Professional teams from Illinois to China participated, as well as local high schools.
