Simon Beck's "Game of Thrones" snow tribute in the French Alps was as epic as the series. It took the snow artist 13 hours to stamp out the image bigger than two soccer fields.

Beck crafted the giant image of the direwolf's head, the House of Stark sigil along with the show's catchphrase "Winter is Coming," with 64,800 steps at the Les Arcs ski resort, said the Huffington Post.



"If it feels like an endurance test waiting for the new series of "Game of Thrones," spare a thought for this chap who walked 20 miles through heavy Alpine snow and still didn't get a sneak preview of the first episode," wrote The Guardian.

"Snow artist Simon Beck walked all day and all night through heavy Alpine snow to create the emblem of the show's House of Stark in the Alps, the size of two and a half football pitches."

Beck selected the Stark sigil for the piece in honor of "Game of Thornes" character Jon Snow, who was played by Kit Harrington, according to Digital Spy. His character dies at the end of the fifth season.

"The first thing you've got to work out is which way round you're going to turn the drawing and where to start it so you don't run off the edge of it," said Beck, per the Post.

"The second stage is measuring a skeleton of accurately plotted lines that go through the drawing, and once you've got enough points measured out you can then do a join-up-the-dots process."

Season six of "Game of Throne" is scheduled to begin April 24 on HBO, with a simulcast on Sky Atlantic.
