Following the cold north

What’s next for Beck, who is pictured here in his snowshoes with Mount Pourri in Les Arcs in the background? He plans to continue his art further north where it is still “sensibly cold.” “If conditions in Arctic Norway continue to look good, I shall go up there after the season has ended here for more art,” he says. In 2013, Beck plans to employ some assistants and expand his snow art with visits to other French ski resorts. He may even put together a snow art tour.
