Artist Simon Beck creates enormous works of snow art that look like giant wintry snowflakes. The meticulous and gorgeous snow patterns are made entirely by foot—Beck creates them while he walks across the terrain in briquette snow shoes.
These nature inspired art installations can sometimes last only a few minutes minutes or up to few days, until the mountain winds blow them away across the valleys. Located in the beautiful valley of Savoie, France, Beck’s patterned snow circles decorate the expanses of the frozen lakes outside of the ski runs at Les Arcs ski resort. Overlooking Mont Blanc, the idyllic ski resort is a wonder of natural beauty—enhanced only by Beck’s designs. After each snowfall, Beck designs and redesigns his incredible patterns over and over on the same site.
