If you live in a state above the snow line, then during the winter you’re going to have to deal with some of that white, fluffy stuff. Three brothers in Minnesota had an idea: they were not just going to shovel their driveway and leave it at that. Instead, the teenage brothers Austin, Connor, and Trevor Bartz decided to do something unbelievable. The three stunned their neighbors in New Brighton, Minnesota by spending 95 hours over the course of 3.5 weeks building a gigantic, 20 foot tall snow shark in their yard.
It’s even more impressive than it sounds.
Austin, Connor, and Trevor stand next to their incredible creation. They claim not to be artists, but we know better.
They gathered snow from the neighbors’ lawns…
And spent weeks crafting this baby.
They even set up a light display so that people could see their work at night.
They even include details in their snow sculptures, like this shark’s double row of teeth.
Last winter, the boys created a snow walrus on the lawn, which took approximately 100 hours.
And this is what 100 hours well spent looks like.
They also created this blowfish the winter before that, but “Puffy” the pufferfish was a different story. It only took the brothers two hours to complete the main body by rolling up snow into a huge ball.
This endeavor was nothing compared to the gigantic shark of 2014.
If you think the pictures are impressive, watch the timelapse of the shark’s construction:
Woah. And I thought building a snowman was pretty cool.
What a wonderful way for three brothers to spend time together during the winter. Please share this with your friends!
