We Built an igloo in Cypress Bowl

It takes 2 people to pack the snow on top
Yesterday (Friday) we built a large igloo on Hollyburn Mountain — Cypress Bowl.

Maps to the site are in the previous blog entry.

The full trip report with some pictures is posted on ClubTread online hikers’ forum

    That looks like it was a lot of fun. I have always enjoyed building snow structures. Every year for as long as I can remember I have made some sort of snow fort. I’m still working on getting pictures of them on my website http://snowforts.ath.cx

    @ SF-Builder. Yes, it is fun. It is great group activity.

    I enjoyed the link to your site, and will add you to my blogroll. I see you use WordPress too. Instead of filling up my account with pictures, I stash them at free sites, such as allyoucanupload and flickr, and then exhibit them here.

    Best wishes

    looks like a great snow fort. I am all for building snow forts. And when it snows like this, I wish I was outside all of the time.

    I love love love snow in Vancouver.

    Hi Laura, thanks for dropping by. I will post here or on Twitter if the group want to make one over the holidays. That location is both close to the parking lot (but not too close) and to Hollyburn Lodge. There, among the cabins it seems to be under the watchful eyes of the resident population. Unlike every other site, igloos build here have not been vandalized.
