Maybe you think it’s early to start thinking snow – while some plan escapes from the cold, skiiers and snowboarders look forward to their season. If you’ve always thought of winter as something to escape, perhaps this year you’ll find something to embrace in these awesome festivals we’ve found. It’s not just about skiing and snowboarding either – ice and snow sculptures call artists to a new medium, while dog sledding, concerts, and snow mazes can be enjoyed by all kinds. Here’s our list of 10 crazy snow festivals coming up in late 2012 and early 2013.
