This is the master mind behind the whole snow man. Considering the conditions of the snow and the amount of time we had before the 2 year old melts down we were fighting against impossible odds. My dad is a coach and he has a tendency to tell people what to do and people have a tendency to not weigh out their options first they just seem to move. This was the case yesterday and it worked. The snow was powdered snow not packing snow. It wont even make a snow ball let alone a snow man. My dad decided that the best thing to do is make a mountain of snow and then carve out levels so it looks like one.
