Snowshoe artist Simon Beck leaves his mark on Banff
Simon Beck creates art using nothing more than a compass, a map drawing and a pair of snowshoes
It may be warming up outside but this video will still give you the chills.
Internationally-acclaimed snow artist Simon Beck, made his first trip to Canada in February to make his mark (albeit a temporary one) in Banff National Park.
Beck creates detailed geometric designs using nothing more than a compass, a map drawing and a pair of snowshoes. He plans his steps through the snowy mountain canvas carefully.
Between Feb. 21 and Feb. 27, Beck created a howling wolf design at Lake Louise Ski Resort, a maple leaf at Sunshine Village, and his largest drawing to date — a snowflake at Peyto Lake — a 450-metre piece that took over six hours to stomp out.
The video was presented by The Upthink Lab.
"#Project show tells the visual story of Beck's magnificent imprints on the pristine, mountainous landscape of Banff National Park — his latest winter canvas," said The Upthink Lab in a release.
