Originally, it all began when the Earl of Glasgow, Patrick Boyle learned that cement that have been added in the process of renovation in 1950 must be removed.

Simon Beck Snow Art
According to English land artist Simon Beck, it all started when he bought an apartment in French Les Arcs in 2004. One evening, after the lifts closed, he went onto the little snow covered lake, plotted 5 points in a pentangle; and joined them up to make a star. He then filled in the 15 triangles that resulted and later added some circles and the result was impressive. When fresh snowfall covered the design he did another more complicated design. It took a while for the idea to take off. “Without snowshoes it was too physical and I abandoned it, and I didnt have a digital camera nor was there internet in Arc2000”.
