Three American teens are putting all other snowmen builders to shame.

Minnesota brothers Austin, Connor and Trevor Bartz made the most of a snow day by sculpting a snow shark standing more than three metres high in what they say is an annual tradition.

This is clearly not your simple, run-of-the-mill snowman and it took more than 95 hours to create, KARE 11 reported.

The fins and tail alone required 10 hours of work.

It was not the first time the Bartz family have constructed a snow creature. 

In previous winters, the teens made a giant puffer fish and a walrus.

"We like to see people's enjoyment, and we like to see people smile, take pictures," Connor  told CBS Minnesota, adding that the activity was a good way to spend time together.

The brothers posted a video showing how they made the sculpture on their YouTube channel, Bartz Outdoors.
