Mountain biking is my favorite way to pass the time until the snow falls. Despite the many miles on my cross-country bike, I’ve never been on a downhill bike, nor have I ridden at Northstar California’s mountain bike park. I left that to my boyfriend and his group of friends, adrenaline loving guys who had learned to repress their self-preservation instincts and fear of heights, big rocks, and potential injury.

Carve Tahoe returns to Northstar California this week as the best teams in the world compete for days on end to create incredibly impressive snow sculptures that will last for less than 48 hours before melting back into water. They come from around the world – Japan, The Netherlands, Mongolia, Germany, Finland, The Czech Republic, Canada, Wisconsin, and right here in Tahoe. They work day and night with saws, shovels and specialty tools on 20-ton blocks of compacted snow that start out looking like oversized sugar cubes and finish as masterpieces.
