If you’re lucky enough to have had the chance to build a snowman, you already know how great it feels to turn a regular pile of snow into something creative. Making snow sculptures is a beloved winter tradition for many people but few take it to the level of the Bartz brothers from Brighton, Minnesota. These three siblings from Brighton, Minnesota, are experts at creating snow sculptures and they wanted to build a massive sea turtle in their front yard.
They needed a LOT of snow for this one! Their latest creation, a 12-foot-tall sea turtle is a true masterpiece. At 12 feet tall, 37 feet long, and 31 feet wide, this sea turtle is gigantic! It took brothers Austin, Connor, and Trevor Bartz about 2 weeks to carefully carve and shape the snow to bring their vision to life.
