Simon walks over layers of fresh snow in special shoes to create his mind-boggling art.
He can easily walk for miles just to create one design.
But the results are worth all of the effort. In fact, they are mesmerizing.
The most interesting thing about this art, though, is Simon creates it knowing it could be gone the very next day.
These delicate patterns were created in the beautiful Savoie Valley in France, overlooking Mont Blanc.
Simon found spaces in between lodges and mountains at the Les Arcs ski resort to create his masterpieces.
Vortex: The artist creates large, mathematical patterns that have varying effects when viewed from different angles and at different times of the day
Intricate: The artist can walk up to 40km over 10 hours to indulge in his passion for snow art
The artist favours level, untracked site with a uniform snow depth of about nine inches of powdery snow
At different times during the day, his creations will look different.
It’s just hard to believe that he spends countless hours making these…
Only to know that they will be gone from this world within a matter of hours or days.
