“Snow-tagging,” described by the Weather Network as “mixing snowshoeing with art,” is all the rage in Canada.
"By using a GPS, a compass — or even with no help at all — participants draw giant pieces of art on a frozen lake," the Weather Network's Rodrigo Cokting reported.
Most of the national parks where “snow-tagging” is catching on have a list of pre-approved drawings potential artists can choose from. Visitors may bring their own designs, but the park must approve them in advance.
Though some rather cold US states like Minnesota may have lakes with an appropriate thickness of the ice (a recommended 4 inches), it’s ill advised to try “snow-tagging” on your own; thin ice could turn a work of art into a hypothermic nightmare!
