An International Snow Sculpture Celebration Comes to Northstar Feb 8-12

January 17, 2013

Baby it’s cold outside - perfect weather to enjoy some frosty art in North Lake Tahoe, and we’re in luck, the majestic and awe-inspiring art of snow sculpting comes to Northstar Lake Tahoe this February. Introducing Carve Tahoe, who’s headquarters are right here in our backyard at Northstar!  Artists from some 20 countries (Japan, Russia, Canada, Germany, Finland and of course – U.S.A.) will be scraping, drilling and shaping gorgeous frozen pillars that stand taller than a human, made from 20 tons of ice. The event will get chiseling from Friday, Feb. 8 through Tuesday, Feb. 12th kicking off the region’s first-ever Carve Tahoe competition, with judging taking place Wednesday, February 13, 2013. According to event organizers, every dollar donated per spectator per vote will go directly to a local non-profit.

Lawrence Nobel, the lead judge of Carve Tahoe, is an award-winning sculptor and illustrator who previously designed a Gold Medal for the 1984 Olympics and created George Lucas’ Yoda Sculpture in San Francisco’s Presidio. “This is a unique opportunity to introduce visitors and local residents to the extreme and rugged art challenge of snow sculpting at a destination that celebrates all things snow,” said Chief Marketing Officer Andy Chapman of the North Lake Tahoe Chamber/CVB/Resort Association. “We are proud to host these illustrious and celebrated carvers in North Lake Tahoe.”

Northstar California is also eager to present the first Carve Tahoe. “We’re thrilled to host Carve Tahoe at Northstar this winter,” said Director of Village and Base Area Operations Nadia Guerriero of Northstar California. “The Village at Northstar is an ideal location to showcase these incredible snow sculptures. Our guests are going to love watching the snow come to life in such a unique way, and seeing the work of these talented artists in person.”
