Season’s First Snow and Heads Up on Snow Sculpt-Off

The first snowfall of the year was an opportunity to take some great photos of the High Line. Photo by Joan Garvin

The first winter storm arrived in New York City on Saturday, blanketing the High Line with a light coating of snow. Our maintenance and operations staff arrived before dawn to begin clearing the pathways, making the park safe for visitors to enjoy the High Line’s winter landscape.

There was not quite enough snowfall to hold the second annual High Line Snow Sculpt-Off, but when a substantial snow storm finally hits, we hope you will join us for day of creativity and fun. Last year, teams built snow mice, snow people, a snow octopus, a giant snow dragon, and much more. Watch a video to get inspired. This year, the team behind the winning sculpture will take home the grand prize from Canada Goose, and runners-up will win prizes from Chelsea Piers, The Standard, New York, and Posman Books.

Start gathering your team and planning your ideas now, and keep an eye out for an email from us announcing the details following the first substantial snow storm.
