A few of us tried Thor Peak this weekend. Actually, the main goal was igloo-building training at Lower Boy Scout Lake on Saturday, followed by a possible attempt on Thor the next day. While an 8-foot igloo would have been sufficient for the four of us, we decided on an 11-footer, just for fun. We ran out of time and good snow, so ad-libbed on the roof closure. We didn't notice the high winds that night, but others camped nearby told us.

Pictures, or slide show.

The igloo, holding as many as seven, will survive until hit by the sun when warmer temperatures return. Until them, anyone is free to use it. Just send $20 to my address.

That is a really neat device that the guys used to shape the snow(blocks on the higher elev) I am wondering if it would have been of some help to dig out the bottom so that the walls would be higher to begin with?

The body betrays and the weather conspires, hopefully, not on the same day.
