A little while ago, while living in Chamonix, me and a friend decided to build an igloo, there was enough snow around and we didnt feel like catching the bus to go snowboarding, and this is what we achieved, an awesome igloo, good enough to live in, if we didnt have a warm cosy apartment a few metres away.

Step 1: Materials and Equipment

First things first, you'l need snow, and lots of it.

And a pair of gloves.

and thats it,

as long as the snow holds together and you can make bricks out of it, then you wont need anything else, maybe a beer or two or a tea and coffee break to warm you up a bit.
<p>Hi there! I live in Jamaica and was wondering how to make this with sand and some good stuff. Last time I tried my 6 year old got stuck, he's still not out yet. Any tips on a better one? </p>
Cool...... Something I will try this Reno winter.<br> <br> Do you think adding water with a sponge or spritzer&nbsp; at night might make<br> it too slippery to climb ?<br> <br> A
Aha, good idea, might stop those damn kids climbing it, lol. <br>Maybe put some food colouring in the spray to make it stand out and look funky? <br>Happy igloo building,<br>would love to see photos when you do, : )
looks like fun
