In just one week, we’ll be able to walk through Gateway Park and marvel at the amazing structures carved out of snow by talented artists from more than 15 countries around the world and 12 high schools in the Chicagoland area. As we gear up for Snow Days Chicago 2014, we’re getting more and more excited to see the work up close! We’ve already gotten a taste of what’s to come with the artist sketches of the snow sculptures, and we wanted to share that sneak preview with all of you too! If you’ve been to Snow Days in past years, you know what an experience it is to see these giant snow sculptures! Take a look at a few of the artist sketches and make sure to come by February 8–9 to see the life-sized snow versions. Check our Snow Days web page to see all of the artist sketches and join in on the snowboarding, snow painting, and more! Plus, check out exclusive rates at InterContinental Chicago for stays February 7-9 to stay the whole weekend!
