The 43rd International Snow Sculpture Contest 2016

International Snow Sculpture Contest, Odori 11 chome, has been completed on Sunday, 7th February 2016. 

The level and skill of each team is pretty high. There are many visitors around the snow sculpture. The weather was so nice and cold that snow condition was pretty good this year.

Last year, there was merciless rain right after opening Snow Festival, so that all of sculptures in the venue were destroyed in order to avoid corruption and to ensure safety for visitors.

The cold weather is good for Sapporo Snow Festival this year.
