Also competing was Team Shafner (Joe Shafner, Sandy Hall and Beth Phillips). Shafner and Hall will travel to the nationals. Team Hall was the NH-sanctioned winner of the 2012 competition in Jackson.
This year, Rothstein had a videographer film the event and interview teams. He is seeking grant money to put together a documentary on the sport of snow sculpting.
“There’s not a lot else to do up there in the winter, and it was a challenge,” he said.
His mother was an artist, so there might be a bit of inherited talent, but he said he resisted anything artistic for a long time.
His sculpting partner in this year’s event, Philip Thornton, is also from Massachusetts.
When asked what he likes about snow sculpting, he said, “who doesn’t like to make a snowman.”
