CANCELLED: Build a Quinzhee Snow Shelter

February 9 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

$10.00

Due to lack of snow, this event has been cancelled.

Unlike an igloo, which is made from piled blocks of snow, a quinzhee is hollowed out from a mound of snow.  It’s a survival cave, but a cozy one.

Join Chuck Whitney on Saturday, February 9 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM and learn the process! If the weather cooperates and there is plenty of snow there will be an option to spend the night in it!

Cost $10.00 Lunch is included.

Call 288-1356 to register.

Must cancel within 14 days for a full refund.  If Schoodic Institute cancels, a full refund will be issued.  Please realize that space is limited and kindly let us know if you can’t keep your reservation so we can offer your spot to someone else.

This program is part of the Acadia Winter Festival.
