Snow artists grace Silver Star

(Courtesy CBC)

The old saying of they build it and they will come may well be true with a recent installation of snow sculpture at Silver Star ski resort.

The mountain resort is trying to extend the magic of the winter season just a bit as part of annual Vernon Winter Carnival.

Sculptures have created a series of giant snow pieces. The CBC's Leah Shaw went to see what's been built and why. Leah also toured the village with the resort's manager Robin Baycroft.
