Two cheeky lads stole a SNOWMAN from outside an alpine hotel’s entrance.

CCTV footage shows the pranksters spotting the model positioned by the side of the road.

They knocked it over before having a quick chat on the icy street and appearing to look up at the security camera.

Undeterred, they grab the snowman and walk a few metres away before dropping it on the ground.

The pranksters then share a spontaneous hug.

They chat with a bystander in the road and pick up the snowman.

They walk off with the statue in their hands as the video comes to an end.

The snowman was ‘kidnapped’ from outside the Hotel Rasmushof in the alpine resort of Kitzbühel, located northeast of Innsbruck in Austria.

It took place over the weekend as the town was packed with visitors attending the Hahnenkamm Races, one of the most prestigious FIS Alpine Ski World Cup events.

A hotel spokesperson said: “Wanted: Snowman kidnapper on the Hahnenkamm weekend!

“Has anyone seen our frosty icon? Clues urgently sought.

“Reward: Hot cocoa for the snowman’s return.”

One local commented: “Poor snowman.”
