You won’t believe how this Game of Thrones snow art was made

It’s easy to look at some art and think “Psch, I could’ve done that”. Then there’s this…

An international snow artist has created the ultimate wintry tribute to HBO series Game of Thrones.

Simon Beck – a bona fide ‘White Walker’ – crafted an incredible dire wolf portrait in the French Alps, and the ‘how’ is what’s most impressive.

To create the piece, Beck trudged through 32.5km of heavy Alpine snow, using just a compass to map his route.

The result is a piece of art that’s about the size of two-and-a-half football pitches.

According to Digital Spy, Beck’s piece took an arduous 13 hours, requiring 64,800 steps in total.

The piece is being used to promote the sixth season of Game of Thrones, which is due to air in the UK on April 25.
