Every year MTU ( Michigan Technological University) has winter carnival.
One of the things that are always done are snow/ice sculptures.
The weather also was perfect for it...
Enough snow had fallen prior to the event, wasn't too cold, but cold enough to keep them from thawing
And the most important weather condition
Two....yes, I said Two days of Sun to enjoy the sculptures.
