Austin, Trevor and Connor Bartz, the artists behind the Bartz Brothers Snow Sculptures, have announced that they won’t be creating a snow sculpture during the winter season of 2021/22, but they hope to be back next year.

You may remember these guys. They are New Brighton’s very own snow sculpture dudes–the Bartz Brothers! They have been creating amazing sculptures since 2013.  They aren’t teenagers anymore, so it is not surprising that they have busy lives.

However, stay tuned. We hope to see talent like this continue and can’t wait to welcome them back next year.  In the meantime, you can peruse the Bartz Snow Sculptures Facebook page for to see their past creations and maybe inspire your own children to get out and build “The Most Magnificent Snow Sculpture”.  You can even watch a video of the process they use to build these gigantic creations.

Below are pictures that Gianna has taken of past sculptures from past years.

These guys work with a huge smile on their faces.  The bitterly cold wind cuts across their face and yet, they keep going.  In the world’s eyes, they gain nothing from this labor of love.  But they know they are getting so much more than recognition and silver.

They are spending priceless time together.  They are enjoying the outdoors.  They are bringing  hope and smiles to the face of the people of Minnesota.  And as last year proves, the whole country.
