ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals to Participate as a Sponsor of the 2012 Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships

Up to 30% Off Lodging during
International Snow Sculpture Championships
The vacation rentals company will provide lodging for sculpting teams and offer up to 30% off lodging for guests during this international competition in Breckenridge, Colo.

ResortQuest Breckenridge will welcome a unique group of artists to the picturesque peaks of the Colorado Rockies this January during the 2012 Budweiser International Snow Sculpture Championships. Sculpting Week will take place Jan. 24-28, 2012, followed by Viewing Week from Jan. 29 through Feb. 5.

Each year, competitors from around the world come to Breckenridge to sculpt extraordinary works of art from massive blocks of solid-packed snow standing 12 feet tall and weighing 22 tons. The 22nd annual competition will feature 16 teams representing eight countries, each of which will create an original piece of artwork that has never been sculpted at any other event. The event is free and open to the public, and guests may visit any time during the competition, not just during Viewing Week. The snow sculptures will be located around the Riverwalk Center located at 150 West Adams Ave.

As a proud sponsor of the International Snow Sculpture Championships, ResortQuest will donate lodging to the Town of Breckenridge for the sculpting teams’ use. For guests coming to view the competition, ResortQuest is offering up to 30% off select Breckenridge vacation rental accommodations with their Winter Lodging Deal. Guests can save 15% off a two- or three-night stay, 25% off a four- or five-night stay, or 30% off a stay of six nights or more. This special offer is available on stays from Monday, Jan. 2 through Thursday, Feb. 16, 2012, but reservations must be booked by Wednesday, Feb. 1.
