Freezing festivities

The Japanese Sapporo Snow Festival is held for the 62nd time this year, from 7th till 13th of February. It once started with high school students building six snow statues in Odori park; today, it is one of Japan's largest winter events with about two million people that come to watch the hundreds of chilly sculptures every year.

Wonder how many snowflakes and graupels fit into this sculpture?
