Another thread here recently made me think about all the various things one can make with snow. I suppose most of us who have grown up with the stuff have also used it to build things from snowmen to snow forts. Those of us who have, what are your experiences, do you still build the occasional snowman given opportunity? How do you usually proceed in the construction, kind of snow/tools etc?

I myself prefer cold snow when building something. It doesn't shrink as fast, and unlike wet it remains workable no matter how cold the weather gets (it's -14°C today here. Brrrr...).

Do you have examples of your creations you want to show or tell about?

And, as a response to the user on the other thread who claimed that cold snow is unworkable, here's a proof-of-concept to prove otherwise;
(And, also to brush up a little. I haven't built anything with snow for almost a decade, time and opportunity always seem to be in shortage...)



A snow pillar made entirely of cold loose snow, simply by adding the stuff by the handful onto it with gloves.
Time ~2 hours(was a bit worried I'd not make it before the sun sets...). Height ~172cm(same as me).

The Neo Armstrong Cyclone Jet Armstrong Cannon is essential for all snow building purposes.

When I was younger I would try to make different food dishes with snow. The best one was Ice Scream.

Bahahaha. I live in England. Building with snow is incredibly laughable.

Nice pillar.

I used to make snow forts and snowmen when I was younger but I haven't really played in the snow much since. Now I find it more of a pain in my ass, people not knowing how to drive in it or having to shovel it or it getting in my way while I go running
