Sculptors from China, Germany and Great Britain are in Whitehorse to take part in the Sourdough Rendezvous snow sculpture exhibition.

Unlike in recent years, the Sourdough Rendezvous presents a sculpture exhibition, not a contest with prizes to be won.

The organizers feared that no sculptor will register, but several teams are still at the rendezvous.

In addition to the international teams, there are also sculptors from Whitehorse, Calgary and Winnipeg.

A friendship born of snow

Alaskan Alan Armbruster and Chinese An Qifeng met in China more than 20 years ago in a snow sculpture competition.

Since then, they regularly combine their expertise and creativity in competitions around the world, by creating winter art pieces as a team.

This is the first time that both have participated in the Whitehorse Sourdough Rendezvous Sculpture Exhibition with the third Alaska Sculptor who is completing their team.

The works are exhibited at Shipyards Park and in front of the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Center in Whitehorse. The festival ends on Sunday.
