A snow built masterpiece

Chantelle Deacon

It was the final day for the B.C. Snow Sculpture Competition at Silver Star Sunday and despite a blizzard many came out for the event.

Every year as part of Vernon's Winter Carnival creative minds come together to build one of a kind snow sculptures in Silver Star's village.

This year proved to be another success.

"It's a piece of political satire with Trump and Kim Jong-un as robots," said Dave Dureault, this year's sculpture winner. "Most of it is a play on words, so you have a dialogue with miss-spelled words that say the same thing."

"We did the checker board which adds to that and the compass and square."

Dureault admits that it takes a lot of work to build such a detailed sculpture.

"It's very linear and kind of hard," he said. "There is lots of cutting away but overall it is what it is."

"It's just skill."

And skill is exactly what this years sculptures portrayed.

All of the sculptures were admirable and contained fine details, making it difficult for the judges to choose a winner.
