At the 14th International Snow Sculpting Championships in Breckenridge, CO, Jan 27-31, 2004, Team Minnesota, USA, consisting of the five authors, carved a 12-foot tall representation of the Morin surface - the halfway point of a classical sphere eversion process. This paper describes the design and realization of this ambitious piece of mathematical visualization
