This isn't very informative. The pictures are meaningless, and the descriptions are pretty obvious...

I am going to be honest this Instructable was stupid I live in a snow belt and I have built many igloos and you are right on your instructions but please keep Instructables serious.

Although an 'igloo' is built with ice bricks, I have built a shelter out of snow using this method and it works. We built a pile of snow then poured water on it a couple of times to make a nice ice shell. I wish I could remember what it's really called...

It's called a Quince, or some variation of that.

Pretty sure a quince is a fruit. I believe what your thinking of is a Quinzhee, but you are right. An igloo is made from bricks of snow, and a quinzhee is made from digging out snow.

got to love the: Caution The entrance tunnel may narrow or the ceiling may even collapse due to softening snow cause by temperatures near freezing or rain. Inhabitants of snow shelters are advised to have a snow tool available to clear blocked exits. these things always make me lughff

mdmoose29 (author)2006-06-07

latobada (author)2006-06-07

i like it, i think i AM going to go build one now...

mdmoose29 (author)2006-06-07

um.. so were u just sitting around.. looking to put something on instructables.. and ran across those pictures? lol. this obviously isnt the real way to do it. otherwise u would form bricks with the snow and build it like a fort.. not just dig it out. but i still give you points for creativity
