Winter Carnival

The McCall area appears to be a winter paradise, but the short days and the long nights take their toll on even the most enthusiastic recreationalist. So what does an entire community do to fight cabin fever? They throw the biggest winter party in the state.

Outdoor Idaho: "Winter Carnival" showcases some of the interesting and offbeat events of this 10-day party and finds side trips unique to the area and the season.

Watch the McCall Winter Carnival's Mardi Gras Parade, the event that sets the tone for the party.

Watch the best riders in the sport compete on converted dirt bikes in the Flashpoint Championship Snowbike Race.

Follow contenders over the four days of the Idaho Snow Sculpting Championship as artists take a solid block of snow and create art.

Learn the ins and outs of snow golfing, Winter Carnival style.

See an Idaho elk herd up close and personal on the Hap and Florence Points Memorial Sleigh Rides.

Ski to the Blue Moon Yurt for an off-the-grid and totally awesome dining experience.
