Formen in Weiss in Ischgl


Artistic works made out of snow and ice are set to amaze anyone visiting Ischgls' snow sculpture competition. Artists and sculptors will create masterpieces using snow from the middle of the superb mountain setting of the Paznaun region.

Frosty art at the Silvretta Arena 

The first art project “Formen in Weiss” took place 30 years ago already. Since then, sculptors from all over the world send their designs to the jury of the Ischgl Snow Sculpture Contest each year. The jury chooses the best ideas and invites artist pairs to realise their concepts at the Silvretta Arena in Ischgl. The sculptors have five days to complete their creations made from snow – many of the up to seven metres in height. Let’s hope the artists don’t end up with icicles for fingers … So, in case you find yourself eye to eye with a giant snow sculpture – that can only mean one thing: It’s that time of the year again, when the Formen in Weiss festival is taking over the slopes of Ischgl! 

And it gets even better: Thanks to guaranteed snow and constant low temperatures at the Silvretta Arena, the frosty art stays intact longer until they melt. Turn your next ski day into a visit to a gallery and marvel at the “coolest” art in the world!
