In the last week, Asmussen has amassed more than 19,000 views on his YouTube channel.

Asmussen, a retired school principal, often uses Google Maps, drafting software, and a number of drafting tools to plan out his creations.

Then he uses his snowshoes and sometimes sticks to recreate them, he said to CBC Radio.

The results are truly breathtaking.

Asmussen hopes to one day "have a snowshoe art festival where maybe we can get a whole bunch of people together."
