Snow shelters. No cloth needed! HA!

9 posts in this topic

Two different snow shelters I've made.  I wish I could claim not needing sticks, but the 2nd one needed a little reinforcement.  The 1st one was with a small cooler as the brick mold and the 2nd with 5 gallon buckets.

From the side, the 2nd one looks like it was made of giant marshmallows.  In painkiller induced delusions, Will would probably literally try to eat himself out of house and home.

And yeah, with a decent fire, it was pretty good.  -Naturally, with a hole to vent the smoke.

Very nice!  Back in college (on Wisconsin!) I traveled with the camping club on skis to remote campsite in winter.  Our tool: a machete.  We had deep snow so we trod down a big area to compress it and quarried our blocks from that.  Our shelters were quite comfortable, even with just backpacking stoves.

And no cloth or sticks used for us either, just snow.
