COME LEARN TO BUILD AN IGLOO
 

Peter Mair is Larch Hills’ resident igloo builder. You might have seen his structures on Frodo’s or Bilbo’s Bog in the last few years.
If you’d like to join Peter in the building of an igloo on an upcoming weekend, email Hermann Bruns at hbruns@live.ca

You’ll need warm clothes (preferably with a moisture resistant outer layer), a shovel, and a 20″ aggressive-tooth handsaw (optional). It will take about 2-3 hours from start to finish.
