Richard Haener of Calgary has been perfecting his snow art over the years in his mother's yard in Yellowknife.

It started with a fort in 2008, then a rocket ship. This year it was a giant snowman with a slide. 

Although her grandchildren will be sad to see it go, Len Haener says she's eager to get her yard back so she can start work on her garden.
