Simon Beck, an internationally acclaimed snow and sand artist from the United Kingdom, has completed approximately 300 murals world-wide since 2004.

Beck visited Colorado for the first time in his career in January. The canvas? Snowy Silverthorne and Dillon.

Starting Jan. 2 and continuing through Jan. 16, Beck and his team are visiting multiple locations in Summit County to create several snow murals.

One of those locations was Dillon Reservoir.
