Past Winters at Carleton, 1917-2001Who cares if it’s April? Snow Sculpture Contest (1975)

Some winter traditions have disappeared over the ages; some remain. While snow sculptures are rarely seen around campus now (save for the snow cave/slide that appeared near the bald spot), sledding on the hill behind Evans is still an active tradition. Only now, we use dining hall trays - slightly less sophisticated than toboggans, but just as fun.

    a quite delicious lion, artistically crafted.

    The boys who use dining hall trays instead of tobbogans should be paddled.
