Local snow carvers win U.S. championship (again)

Last weekend at the United States National Snow Carving Competition in Lake Geneva, Wis. Eau Claire artists Steve Bateman and Jason Anhorn teamed up with Wauwatosa artist David Andrews to win First Place (in the country, y'all) … again. They're also the 2013 champions. And since that's clearly not enough awesomeness, they also took home the competition's "People's Choice" award. So a huge congratulations to these fine guys, representing both Eau Claire and Wisconsin. The final piece is truly fantastic.

You might recognize Bateman and Anhorn as "The Starvin' Carvists," who sculpt snow at Volume One's Winter After Hours event every Thursday night in Eau Claire's Boyd Park.

Workin' on it.
