Tip 5: Build An Effective Snow Shelter

  • Dig down and then sideways to keep the shelter from collapsing. Snow is good at supporting itself.
  • Make the shelter slightly bigger than the space you need for your body so your body has less air to warm
  • Be sure to put down a pad, sleeping bag, or other layer of some kind between you and the ground. Laying directly on the snow will sap the heat from your body.
