Snow Drawings at Rabbit Ears Pass by Sonja Hinrichsen

February 21, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Step by step this massive snow drawing was trampled into freshly fallen snow by artist Sonja Hinrichsen with the help of 5 volunteers last month at Rabbit Ears Pass in Colorado. I love that a piece so expansive and yet so temporary can be created with a few pairs of well choreographed snow boots. If you like this, also check out the beach drawings of Jim Denevan. The photos above are by Cedar Beauregard and you can see many more here. (via reddit)

Update: It turns out Hinrichsen completed another piece just a week later. Check out the video below.

Update: Want even more snow drawing madness? Don’t miss the work of Simon Beck.
