200 sculptures and counting; crew transforms snow pile in downtown Wausau


By: Erin Freiderich at WSAW

The final preparations for this year's Winter Fest snow slide are being completed in Wausau.

A team of carvers transformed a massive pile of snow into an impressive piece of art at Wausau's 400 Block.

Tom Queoff is the team's captain.

“We call ourselves Team USA. We've been together for 33 years. We've carved over 200 snow sculptures, maybe more. We've been in competitions all over the world and I guess we're going to keep carving for a few more years,” he said.

Carving began Wednesday and will finished Friday.

Not only will this be a fun sculpture to look at, it will also be free for kids to take a slide down as part of the Winter Fest festival.
