If you’re someone who drives a car, it’s quite likely snow is your biggest enemy this time of the year. But you gotta admit, building a snowman can be exciting.

So, let’s put all of the grouchiness aside and let’s check out the most epic (on one scale or another) snowmen and snow sculptures the internet has ever seen.

Bored Panda has scoured the ether for the best of the best, and compiled the curated list below. And why not vote and comment on the submissions you adored the most, or share your snowman adventures and ideas in the comment section at the bottom of the article!

Snow sculpting is a form of art, usually considered performance art as it’s very much like sculpting using ice or sand—mostly practiced outdoors and often seen by many.

You often see people use anything from just bare hands to shovels, hatchets, and saws, depending on the characteristics of ice. We’re talking about proper snow sculpting, though—building a simple snowman, on the other hand, doesn’t require more than just enthusiasm and manpower.

But in context, pro-level snow sculpting involves blocks of snow that span 6 to 15 feet (1.8 to 4.6 meters) on each side and weigh between 20 and 30 tons. That’s about 3 to 5 elephants in weight.

Bored Panda got in touch with Ivan Nastić, an illustrator and calligrapher from Serbia who’s passionate about fantasy characters and socially-engaged art, and the man behind this snowman, which is also featured in this article.

“I love the winter and the snow so much. The snow is so pure and serene, so my idea is to make something completely opposite out of it,” said Ivan about the inspiration behind his bloodily-spooky snowman. “My initial idea was to make something that will represent the year 2020, some kind of evil spirit snowman.”

“I woke up and saw that a lot of snow fell during the night, so I just got dressed and ran out and started making the basis of the Snowman,” elaborated Ivan.

“While I was attaching the head onto the body the idea of a gaping mouth just appeared in my mind and I thought ‘that’s it, the neighbors are gonna love this one.’”

“This particular Snowman didn’t require anything special, so I didn’t have to use any supports. The snow was just perfect for sculpting.”

But sculpting doesn’t come easy, and even building a traditional snowman can become a bit of a challenge. And Ivan was no exception, as he explained:

“The most challenging part is the same for every snowman I made–finishing everything before the evening frost. When the temperature drops, the snow becomes powdery and impossible to work with, and I work alone so the ticking of the watch is what makes the adrenaline go.”

Now, if it just so happens that you’re in an area that’s experiencing snow, sufficient amounts of it, then why not go and build a snowman, and keep in mind some words of wisdom who’s built his fair share of snowpeople:

“My advice for the snow enthusiast out there would be: imagine the craziest Snowman and try to build it, but keep in mind that gravity is the enemy and the snow is fickle. Use whatever tools you can find to shape the snow–knives, spoons, gardening tools.”

“I always use two sets of gloves, thick for rough sculpting and thinner ones for details. And be sure to clean the snow around the Snowman because it gets super slippery from all the walking around and you don’t want to fall and ruin your work. Happened to me once.”

“Star Wars AT-AT Snow Sculpture I learned with powdery snow that the trick is to pile it up into a mound and just let it freeze. Once it’s packed and dense after a week or so of the sun during the day and cold temps at night, it’s ready for shaping. This AT-AT I created using a Fiskars tree saw for the shape and a flat head screwdriver for the detailing.

Lumos! We took a crack at sculpting Hogwarts from the Harry Potter films with all of this snow!

Rock Mining Locomotive Snow Sculpture. This one was great fun. I had a long mound of snow that I’d shoveled and just left for a couple of weeks so it would freeze and pack down. The kids riding past on school busses played guessing games while it sat there as to what it was going to be. Most thought a dragon. In the end I made a long train with a bunch of mining carts. The carts are all full of rock that was pretty fun to shape with the Fiskars tree saw. Was hysterical, this one. It was right near the end of our driveway and the road, and people would stop and take pictures in front of it.”
