Fourteen teams from around the world compete in the International Snow Sculpture Championships in Breckenridge, creating mammoth works of art from 12' tall, 20-ton blocks of snow.

Breckenridge, Colorado – January 3, 2006. MHD, the new HDTV music television network from MTV Networks Music Group, today announced a series of live concert specials shooting January 11 & 12 in Breckenridge, Colorado. Dubbed “Music with Altitude”, the concerts will feature Dashboard Confessionals, Goo Goo Dolls, country superstar Gary Allen, and new up-and-coming recording artist and reality television star Cheyenne Kimball.
The concert series is slated as part of the annual Ullr Fest celebration, an infamous Breckenridge local event, which pays homage to the Norse god of snow, Ullr. With over 180 inches of snow to-date the Breckenridge locals are sure to have much to celebrate. The event is famed as a week of non-stop tomfoolery including a wacky parade down Main Street, crowning of the Ullr King and Queen, and the “Ullympics’”.
The MHD concerts will be staged at the downtown Breckenridge Riverwalk Center and are free to the public. Tickets will be available starting Friday, January 6th at the Breckenridge Activities Center at 137 S. Main Street, or by calling 877-864-0868.
“With the party atmosphere of Ullr Fest buzzing around Breckenridge and the snow-capped Rocky Mountains providing a spectacular background, these concerts truly embrace what MHD is all about – combining great music, great visuals and high def in a way that only MTV Networks can do,” said Peter Barn, Executive in Charge of “Music With Altitude” and Vice President, Label Relations, MTV/MTV2. “The mix of artists on stage gives Ullr Fest visitors and MHD viewers a great blend of country, rock and pop, truly reflecting the MTV, VH1 and CMT heritage of our exciting new HDTV channel.” (courtesy of Breckenridge Ski Resort)
