Winter doesn't have to be a bad thing

In 1988, The Proclaimers, well, proclaimed that they would walk 500 miles for love. While international snow artist Simon Beck didn't quite walk that far, he did trek a fair bit to showcase his love for Game of Thrones.

Hosted by Sky Atlantic, the British television channel that carries HBO's hit series, Beck walked approximately 20 miles through Alpine snow to create this artistic tribute to the Stark family.

According to the description on the YouTube page, it took Beck about 24 hours to carry out the design, using just a compass for navigation. The entire piece takes up approximately 2.5 soccer pitches.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO for its sixth season April 24.
