As with any winter in Tahoe, living among massive snowfall includes the many household tasks of removing the snow off different areas of your home. This creates what we like to call “widowmakers.”
A widowmaker is large pack of snow or ice hanging from the house that can fall on someone as they pass under, potentially creating widows. So any responsible resident would clear these out to keep everyone safe. A recent video posted by professional snowboarder Tim Humphreys shows how they get rid of widowmakers in the midst of a snowy winter:
