just cause you are ignorant doesn't mean everyone is. You pile up brush, cover it with a tarp, plaster the snow onto the tarp. , Mix water with it, sprinkling it onto the snow and you can get any consistency of snow that you want. Now dont you feel stupid?

You ain't 'plastering' no powder snow on a tarp, or mixing it with water at temps near zero, and colder with a 20+ mph wind chill.

Where do you come up with this sh-it???

In this country, your best bet would be to find a draw with a solid old drift, and dig a snow cave.

Nobody is making an igloo out of powder.

Just cause you can't even sprinkle water on snow doesn't mean nobody can. How'd you like to put your money where your mouth is? i"'ll be you a year's pay I can do this. no problem. we used to do it as kids. I go up to illinois to see an old friend every year. 0F is nothing much. I used to have to feed cattle and move them to the pond or the well in -20F as a kid, with just 2 sets of clothing, pos cotton gloves, coveralls and a hat.

you need a LoT more snow and work to do it that way and you have to wait for it to solidify for several hours, or it'll collapse on you when you try to tunnel into it. Even then, it wont work with powder.

You don't know what you don't know.

Hopefully you never need to survive in your powder snow igloo. I suppose since you can get by overnight in cammies and a watch cap, down to 0 degrees F, you will be fine....lol
