Snow shelters come in all shapes and sizes, from the renowned Inuit igloo to simple snow trenches. This is the Quinzee snow cave, made by heaping snow into a dome and then tunnelling out a living area within. In this video I make a Quinzee snow shelter and give my honest opinion on how useful it is in a survival situation. The Quinzee snow cave is useful when hard packed frozen snow is not available to build an Inuit igloo, and there is only powdery snow.
I made it primarily because it was fun to do so and so that my Jack Russell could have somewhere to hide from the constant freezing temperatures, snow and blizzard winds while he is protecting my property (he still gets to sleep in my bed though…).
