Winter Trails Day in Rocky Mountain National Park

Post by Igloo Ed » Mon Jan 19, 2015 8:13 pm

I've been building an igloo at Winter Trails Day in RMNP every year for a long time now. Missed last year because they didn't have the event due to the Colorado floods of 2013.
The event is a snowshoe demo with all sorts of snowshoes people can try out and the igloo is just an added attraction that draws a lot of interest from all walks of life. I like the little young ones the most. One 18 month old didn't want to leave the igloo once he was in it.
My friend Frank helped and with his experience, we built the entire igloo with base in four hours and ended up talking to quite a few interested people.
The igloo turned out great with some horrendous TG snow:
