From spirographs to starbursts, Beck tends toward mathematical patterns, which create varying effects depending on the vantage point and the light. He works for up to nine hours on each ephemeral design, forming the snow into new patterns whenever a fresh snow falls or mountain winds blow his work away.
You can view more of Beck's snow drawings on his Facebook page. Or, if you're lucky enough to be planning a ski trip to the Alps, his creations can be seen just beyond the ski runs of Les Arcs resort, overlooking Mont Blanc.
