2016: 67th Sapporo Snow Festival
43rd International Snow Sculpture Contest
Snow Sculpture Design:
The 2016 Snow Sculpture design incorporated an Australian native animal and the human consequences from the environment we have created. Linking the concept with a well know Japanese pop culture character (Godzilla ) to complement the idea.
Description: Australia is the home to many deadly creatures. Luckily the rare endangered Australian “Green and Golden Bell Frog” is not one of them. Humans have overtaken nature, clearing habitats, developing highways and cities; this sculpture is representing Frog’s Revenge! Fortunately they only grow to 9cm and will not eat you.

Builder | Snow Construction
Having experience of 16 Hokkaido winter activities and living in Japan for the past 10 years Scott feels at home in the Japanese Snowy Backcountry. Having always enjoyed and studied the alpine backcountry he finds the snow the key to unlocking Hokkaido secrets. Scott's knowledge of the snow and its structure is a key factor in the sculptural design and strength.
