All you need are old ski's, a metal tube chair, and some ingenuity. Problem: I recently got a second husky dog, and needed a way to train the dogs as a team in a safe and fun way. Skijoring is an option, though I have concerns for the safet...

Lucky for me I had an exhaust fan from a bathroom renovation project. I spent $11 on a bilge hose at the local big box home improvement store. I searched everywhere for a wooden box/old drawer/plastic storage bin/...

This Snow Fort was built this year in Romania. It was built by 2 guys (Me and another guy) We built this in our free periods at school. It took us 18 days of working 2-3 hours a day 5 days a week.  We had abnormal amounts of snow in romania as well as surprisingly low temperatures (-15ªC) We did no...

This being a floor area of roughly 10ft x 5ft (owning a real one makes this easier to check ^_^ ). However, I soon realised this was a bit too far, so I compromised on a roughly 3/4 sized mini. With only about 10cm of snowfall I needed to transport snow from el...

But when I do, the last thing I want is cold wet feet. Instead of putting down the money for a pair of snow boots, I improvised with a $7 can of rubberized undercoating and an old pair of boots. After the day was over the coating had come off where the leathe...

It is one of the most forgiving media I know and when it's just right you can build almost anything. On the other hand it can also be very tricky, If it's too cold nothing packs (as with the Dewback/Stormtrooper combo we were forced to create packable snow by adding the pu...

I disolved the colors in water and put it into a spray bottle. That makes it very easy to paint. The reason I used watercolor is simple, if the snow melt all the colors will be gone. You can use spray cans...
