Colossal Snowshoe Art by Simon Beck

Really cool things to do when out in the snow, or maybe just to look at.

Simon Beck is an artist from Southern England that uses snowshoes to create giant land art in the snow. Most of his work takes place in the ski resort of Les Arcs in the French Alps where Beck has a chalet and spends most of his winters. After planning the initial design on paper using a protractor and ruler, each piece takes Simon about 10 hours to complete.

An orienteering map maker by trade, you can find all of Beck’s work on his frequently updated Facebook page. Below you will find a small selection of his amazing work along with information about his process and technique sprinkled throughout.
