Magnificent Geometric Snow Art by Simon Beck

For the past decade, Simon Beck has been decorating the mountains with his stunning mathematical drawings, created by running in snowshoes across the freshly laid snow. Each image takes him up to 11 hours to make and covers an area about 100m x 100m, requiring him to travel up to 25 miles as he marks out the pattern. 

Beck produces about 30 snow drawings every winter in the northern hemisphere, mostly in the Alps. He started 10 years ago doing it for fun and now it is his main occupation. “When you have a blank piece of paper you draw on it,” he says. “So drawing on a blank snowfall seemed like a natural thing to do”.

You can learn about the fine details of his process in this FAQ and see additional photos over on Facebook. He also published a book of his work titled Simon Beck: Snow Art
