25 Incredible Snowmen and Snow Sculptures to Build With All That Snow

So what are you going to do with all that snow?

In the west we haven’t seen this much snow over a winter since 1902. In the east, a severe nor’easter came and dumped a couple of feet to welcome in the new year. In the south, well, y’all should come up and visit our snow. Really. Tradesies?

There’s a lot of snow around, friends, and the best part of winter is kicking the kids out the door into the backyard to build a snowman.

But not just any snowman, you see. The incredible snowman has become the winter equivalent of the Jack-O-Lantern. Just as Pinterest has given us angst about what kind of masterpiece we will carve in a gourd, so it has given us inspiration to a great more magical things than three balls of snow piled high, with a carrot jabbed in one.

Incredible snowman manufacturing is serious business for the serious artist, check out these fantastic snow sculptures to get some inspiration for your next backyard adventure.
