Incredible Trampled Snow Art by Simon Beck

When, due to his feet injuries, British engineer Simon Beck could no longer run, he decided to get some exercise by taking long walks. To make it more interesting, 54-year-old would put on his snowshoes and walk in distinctly geometric patterns. Step by step, after 8 to 10 hours of walking it creates some jaw-dropping trampled snow art.

Being an orienteering leader, Simon calls his method a ‘kind of reverse orienteering’ and first designs his patterns on the computer. Once in the snow, he uses an orienteering compass and a measuring tape to lay out the design, then picks up a clothes line and a central anchor to complete the circles and curves.

These snow ‘crop circles’ can be found in the ski resort of Les Arcs in France, where Simon resides during winter. For more snow art be sure to check out Sonja Hinrichsen that we’ve featured last year.
