Sky Atlantic celebrates Game of Thrones Season 6 with its own White Walker

Spring may be on the horizon, but for Game of Thrones fans, “Winter is Coming” with the approach of Season 6. To celebrate the show’s return on Monday 25 April 2016, Sky Atlantic has released its very own White Walker in the form of international snow artist Simon Beck, to create the largest snow tribute to Game of Thrones on Earth.

Walking for 13 hours, through 32.5km of heavy Alpine snow, taking 64,800 steps with just a compass as his guide, snow artist Beck’s footsteps emblazoned the sigil of the show’s House of Stark across the Alps, creating snow art the size of 2.5 football pitches. Beck chose the Stark sigil for his piece in tribute to the Jon Snow.

“Set in the alpine snow, Simon Beck’s amazing Stark sigil from Game of Thrones is the perfect tribute to a truly epic TV show,” says Zai Bennett, director of Sky Atlantic.
