Step 1: Find Your Source of Ice

Usually it can be snow or a lot of freezers in one place

Step 2: Put Your Ice in One Place That You Can Get to Pretty Easily

Put your ice in one place that you can get to pretty easily.

Step 3: Very Careful Step:

take the ice out of the inside of the mound so that you have a hole instead of a ice.

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

    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
