Snow Sculptures

Grand-Prize-(2)What says “Welcome to Winter Carnival” better than touring all of the amazing snow sculptures throughout town? The sculptures are a signature part of the Winter Carnival festivities and we would like to invite everyone to tour the town to see what our local businesses dream up this year!

And don’t miss the Idaho State Snow Sculpting Championships in Depot Park starting midweek of Carnival. Artists from all over the West will come to McCall to participate in the Annual Idaho Snow Sculpting Championship. This competition has an outstanding reputation for providing the opportunity for artist to create sculptures in a scale much larger than would be possible in any other medium. The artistic experience and the camaraderie with fellow artists makes this competition a truly fun and rewarding artistic experience. Location of the event will be downtown with the lake and Brundage Mountain as a back drop.
