Keith Martin works on a snow sculpture of Santa Claus while skiers enjoy the warm weather at Purgatory in 2011. The resort will be hosting another snow-carving in the Plaza from Monday through Dec. 29.

In this world, there are lots of things you can carve things out of: SPAM, butter, ice, turkey, snow.

And while we haven’t gotten a whole lot of snow down in these parts, from Monday to Dec. 29, check out snow sculptures in the Plaza at Purgatory.

Watch as local artists create their masterpieces out of blocks of snow right before your eyes. You can even chat with the artists while they work.

For more information, or if you’re an artist who wants to give it a try, email Purg’s events manager at mkrichman@purgatoryresort.com.
