A team consisting of me, my brother and a friend of ours participated in a little snow sculpture event. It went as planned.
 
The viking dwarf was entered into an event themed "snowman friend". So we made a fearsome Dwarf ally whom everyone would like to have as friend, and not enemy.
 
Our friend came up with the idea and led the common sculpting (we had 4 hours to go, with an icy block to attack). It's in the 1:1 scale. Once the basic shapes were cut out, I did the head and beard, and details like the shield boss and scalemail. My brother did the cloak and made a very good circle shield. Our buddy made the knife arm and shoulder pads.
 
It's in the 1:1 scale. I wonder how long it takes before someone puts an object into its gaping mouth. My brother placed a baguette and an empty bottle in it while we sculpted away.

Do you have snow sculptures of your own to share? Please do not hesitate to do so! :)

I'm a late comer to this thread but I'm surprised there isn't more love for this. I suppose if you titled it 'let's whinge about EoT' you'd have hundreds of comments. At any rate this is brilliant, mate. Best snowman I've seen. Grand job!

Thank you kindly folks!

@Rewelus: In a small park in a small town in central Sweden. The snow dwarf ended up getting an empty beer bottle in his mouth, last thing I saw of the contest entry that winter.

Some quick heads from this weekend's ski trip. Spent most of the spare time digging snow. A few Dwarf heads in there (and one uinfinished one, owing to the metal spades breaking against the hardened, icy snow crust):

@Killer Angel: Thanks!

I had planned to spend most of the day sculpting on a long-planned project, but Father Winter had other plans. Spent most of the day shovelling snow. It's still pouring down, wonderful!

Some of the shovelled snow was collected in a ramp, to make a snow dwarf. It's not thaw enough for building easily (I tried), so no helmet or even full face this time, only a simple low head. This face will meet the children when they go to school tomorrow morning, and the adults when they drive to their jobs:

Not in snow yet, no! Perhaps that is to come? Done some Dinosaurs that never were photographed, though. :)

 

It has begun. Anyone up for a snow Dwarf challenge?

The weather here is a balmy 72F, surf conditions 9 to 15 feet, bikini clad Rinns everywhere!!!  If I want snow I will drive to my parents 4 hours away, 6000 feet and maybe once every 5 years get snow....

Can you trust an elf?
 
The icy and lumpy snow made this one tricky, and pulled down the quality drastically, as well as having it end up way too thin. Still, it's a face.

The snow is currently too frosty and lumpy to be much good for detailwork. It would not have been advisable to attempt teeth with such material:

Use icicles!

 

It still hasn't snowed here, so nothing to show! :-(

Good idea, but there are hardly any icilcles at all now. Need some melting first. Hope you get snow for snow Dwarfs!

It is that time of the year! Snow has finally come in droves. Days and days of shovelling and skiing has ensued. Blissful.

This is the same as my 2018 post: The weather here is a balmy 72F, surf conditions 9 to 15 feet, bikini clad Rinns everywhere!!!  If I want snow I will drive to my parents 4 hours away, 6000 feet and maybe once every 5 years get snow.... 

 

As always great night-time pictures.
