(WMC-TV) - The snow may be missing in Memphis, and many other parts of the country, but a "snow artist" is hoping to bring you a white Christmas with a YouTube video and a series of incredible photos taken at a ski resort near the border of France and Spain.

Simon Beck is creating art with his snow shoes and fresh powder. And even though his wintry works have the chance of being blown away the next day, he is still trekking through the snow to produce incredible works of snow art, as well as generate awe and wonder in people across the globe.

He began his unique hobby with a 5-point star around Christmas in 2004, and since then, he has made countless snow wonders for skiers and Internet surfers to see.

Check out the video below that he and the ski resort, Grandvalira, created to wish everyone a Merry Christmas this season.
