Snow circles, mystery revealed

Cerchi nella neve - Snow circles

When we think about crop circles we usually think of agriglyphs, i.e. areas of crop ripen in which the plants appear flattened in way uniform so that to form a pictogram, clearly visible from the sky, what with the summer seem to be revealed with high frequency (first in Great Britain, but by now all over the world, included Italy). Rarely however we think about associating the phenomenon to other seasons.

Snow circles, a message from the sky?

Yet from some years beside to the crop circles have begun to also be revealed with always great frequency even snow circles, obviously during the winter season. The first snow circles were reported over 10 years ago from excursionists who climb up on mountains top with sealskin or snowshoes at their foot. From the tall one of the peaks the sketches on the snow, made as great disks or complex geometric forms as those of their summer relatives (and that some interpret as messages from aliens), appeared in all of their majesty, being immediately photographed.

With the return in valley the photos began to go round the winter locations, always creating great curiosity. But if for crop circles, despite is by now shown that many if not all could be recreated in a few hours with extreme facility by men endowed with very simple equipments, doubts stay concerning the authors, the doubt about the possible alien origin has lasted a short time. A British engineer mountain enthusiast, who works mapping mountain tracks, has publicly admitted to be the author of the snow circles since 2004.

Snow circles are artworks

According to what Beck has explained every sketch can ask for one day of job, but in some cases not succeeding in finishing it in day Beck has continued at night also. The ideal surfaces are those flat so plateaus, subsidences and frozen lakes are the typical locations for the snow circles of Simon Back (but not only: also American artists as Sonja Hinrichsen experimented with success this form of “white” art).

To realize his snow circles Beck just walk, for hours, with snowshoes at his foot, following a very specific path, planned calculating with precision measures and passages to do for correctly realizing the desired sketch. Due to their success, snow circles are realized, always more often, not only in isolated places but also to the feet of the most known ski resort of the world and it’s not excluded that next winter can see yourselves one of it. In this reagard don’t alarmed and enjoy the show, maybe sending us the photos of yours “brought closer meeting” with the snow circles.
