Since 2012, Bud Werner Memorial Library and The Nature Conservancy have led the community in creating enormous, landscape-scale snow drawings during the snowiest winter months. Patterns on the land are laid down by volunteer artists who each walk an individual path within a collective space and leave their designs in the snow by wearing snowshoes. This year the tradition continued with the library partnering with the North Routt Community Charter School.
