McCall, Idaho USA
10 days at end of January
Highlighted by the ever-wacky, non-traditional Mardi Gras parade at high noon on the first Saturday -- topped by Monte Carlo Casino Night that evening. Also don't miss the opening ceremonies or the neon children's parade on the first Friday night.
For many, the snow sculptures are the highlight of the McCall Winter Carnival
The second weekend is themed "Snow Daze." and focuses on the different ways to play in the snow.
Brundage Mountain Ski Resort is nearby and Picabo Street, Olympic gold medalist is often on hand to greet skiers. Ponderosa State Park has an awesome set of trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing
