CORNISH — Organizers of a family snow sculpture-making event at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Park are hoping for a healthy dose of snow prior to this weekend’s event. If not, attendees can still gather for crafts and other activities from 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday in Cornish.

“We’re talking about just getting big trash cans and coolers, filling those with ice, letting them sit for a while, and then families can carve them like a real sculpture,” said Emma Beck, education, engagement and event support intern, who is organizing the event along with Kerstin Burlingame and Kelly Broker-Campbell.

Additionally, there are plans for a snow-based obstacle course that will include making a snow angel, pulling someone on a sled and moving five shovelfuls of snow at a fast pace.

“I think the obstacle course is going to be fun,” Beck said.

Editor’s note: Registration for the free event is recommended by contacting Beck at 802-457-3368, ext. 222 or emma_beck@partner.nps.gov. Liz Sauchelli can be reached at esauchelli@vnews.com or 603-727-3221.
