What Is The Format For The Greatest Snowman?

The Greatest Snowman will be a one-episode Christmas special. Channel 4 have confirmed that a group of celebrities will be sent to an Alpine ski resort with a team of “seasoned sculptors, engineers, and snow builders” for three days and nights. Over the course of their time they will “attempt to carve and construct incredible structures made from snow and ice.”

After “three tough rounds,” finalists will compete in a showdown to create “the greatest snowman” using the skills they have picked up along the way. The winner will be crowned at the end of the episode.
