Revelstoke snow sculpture event pivots to yard decorating competition

‘Mother Nature is the boss here,’ says an event organizer

Originally, the plan was for 10 teams to chisel and shape their artistic creations on snow blocks for the Revelstoke Winter Carnival’s snow sculpture competition.

Mother Nature, however, has other plans, and host, Cronometer (a tech company based in Revelstoke) has pivoted in response to the weather. Event organizer, Jessica Duerks said, “we all wish we could make it snow, but Mother Nature is the boss here.”

Instead of the snow sculpture event, Duerks is organizing a yard decor competition. The goal of the updated event is to transform your yard into a winter wonderland. Those interested can fill out the google form Duerks created, where they will input their address.

Duerks then plans on creating a map with the contestants’ addresses, so Revelstokians can check out their neighbours’ designs.

The best yard design will win a cash prize of $150. CEO and founder of Cronometer, Aaron Davidson said “it’s really exciting to find ways to participate in this and lots more [community events] in the future.”

The Revelstoke Winter Carnival will take place from March 1 to 3. To learn more about the carnival events, people can visit website.
