Pity I lost my snow bunny and snow sphinx I made when my phone died. They would have been a great addition to this thread!

If you can find them, sure! Snow Rabbits only come around about once a year here... for a day or two maximum! Happy hunting!

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).

Does this person know how an igloo works?


I'll be perfectly honest--you generally cannot build with the type of loose cold snow that generally fell where I lived in Montana.

It's not like the snow in your image. It doesn't collect on tree branches (especially several inches like your pic), it's too loose, it does not pack well (or at all in most cases) and feels more akin to cold, sharp sand than it does fluffy, wet snow like I get here in Ohio. Basically, it's not "wet" enough.

Occasionally, like once or twice a winter, we'd get a storm that would deposit the "wet" snow that you CAN actually have fun with, true. Hell, my brother even DID actually make an "igloo" then (in quotes because the thing looked hilarious, almost like a giant hornet nest, especially when it finally started melting (in freaking MAY!).

But yeah. I wasn't in the last thread, so I don't know if that's what the guy meant by "cold snow," but I can certainly vouch that some snow (particularly the cold "sandy" snow of eastern Montana) is certainly unworkable by conventional methods. (My brother claimed to have tried an igloo 2.0 that turned out well using cold snow, but he had added water to it. I never saw it, though.)

Dang, I was going to randomly insert my political views, too. You beat me to it.

Oh well, guess I'll find another way to be a complete fool.
