Simon Beck is a snow artist. He creates artistic masterpieces just by walking over pristine snow in a pair of snowshoes. The video above is an original masterpiece he made in 2016 in Stryn, Norway.

Here is a shorter clip of some of Beck's artwork that is even more amazing, especially in the details he puts into it:

I'm getting tired just from watching those. I also want some hot cocoa.
