Snow Fort Camping | We Built a Homemade Igloo and Spent the Night in -15°C Temperatures during Canadian Winter (don't try this at home)
☀️OUR MERCH IS NOW LIVE AT eamonandbec.com/ ☀️ Excited to share this limited-edition collection inspired by our life on the road with all of you. But we're even more excited to be donating 50% of our profits directly to an amazing charity H2o4ALL h2o4all.org/
We're Eamon and Bec and after years of living in a van to travel the world the pandemic brought us home to Canada. Since then we've bought a rundown cabin in the woods and focused our time on the renovations and DIY projects to make this cabin our home. But after several months of hard work indoors and a long, grueling Canadian winter we thought it was about time to step outside our comfort zone and embrace a new adventure in our own backyard!

  • Hey Eamon and Bec!! My name is Karly, I’m 18 and have a little message that just came to mind when I pressed play on this video! I hope that it reaches you both! The effort y’all put into your videos, podcast, COOKBOOK, business, personal life, social media, ALL OF IT is filled with such rigor and life and love and quality and compassion and LAUGHS. that for all the people who haven’t seen your content due to COMPLETELY JACKED algorithms there’s still SO many of us who feel truly inspired, uplifted and not alone right now because of you. Thank you for being true to yourselves and following your dreams. I can only hope to cultivate theses characteristics in myself as I grow. Everything y’all put out is surely coming back to you, your insanely inspirational leaders of humanity’s most authentically beautiful aspects, to me at least and I’m so thrilled that y’all exist and do what you do. NEVER GIVE UP.

  • You sell "beanies" at your store? ...and you call yourself Canadian?!? :) Whatever happened to the infamous Canadian "toque"! :D Thanks for the videos! All the great snow shots and adventures brings back great memories of when I lived in Canada! Love the snowmobiling vid! Still super high on my bucket list! So what is the trick to sleeping in the snow? I'm really kicking myself I missed doing any of those outdoor avalanche courses when I lived in Canada years ago. Still high on my bucket list! When I was snowboard instructing one of the the other instructors slept out in the snow one night. They said they just dug under the snow and made a small snow cave and slept the night in their snowboard instructors gear with nothing else but another person and kept warm. So is it about having the right layers or is it about maybe about having a really small space so that it keeps the heat in? As someone who never grew up living in the snow, I'd love to know!

  • Omg. The best bit was watching you guys with the mattress 🤦‍♀️😂😂😂😂 I've never built an igloo before, but have built a few snow cave, put a whole bunch of hiking packs full of gear piled in a heap and then just packed a bunch of snow really thickly on top, dug out a hole, pulled out the packs, carved the inside and walla! Solid effort on your built though!!!

  • Should’ve added a few pelts to the doorway to be really authentic... and I think it would’ve helped with warmth... but they build their igloos a lot bigger and start fires in them so that probably helps a little too 😉

  • Emon and Bec today was one of those days where everything just piled on my shoulders and I was having really bad anxiety. I called my mom just bawling my eyes out and I was hyperventilating, and honestly all day I felt like crying because there’s just so much piling on me recently. But watching your guys video today made me feel so uplifted and happy!! Like I don’t feel on the verge of crying anymore. So, I just wanted to thank you guys 🥺 I’ve been watching your videos for a while and I just really appreciate you guys for being so pure and authentic. It’s refreshing ♥️♥️

  • Congrats on your anniversary, and also on completing your MASSIVE igloo. A little background, my husband and I have been snow camping for about 20 years now, (yes we backpack and sleep in the snow) and we also teach classes on how to build igloos. If you can imagine as we watched your video of the build over 3 days, we were dying and wanted to just step through the screen and help. With the right snow conditions one can knock out a 'gloo in about 3 hours, not large enough for a queen mattress (we laughed so hard at that!) but just large enough to fit 2 people and a dog comfortably for the weekend. It is an exhausting process, but can be very rewarding especially if you build during a calm day, and get to survive a raging storm through the night in the silence of your 'gloo snuggled in sleeping bags with 1L nalgene bottles full of hot water tucked into your bags by your feet and upper torso. If you'd like to see some photos of our classes click here: www.snowcamping.org/photos.php then the gallery link at the bottom. In the years 2014 / Alumni trips / Igloo 101 and also 2013 / Alumni Trips / Cut and 'gloo We love you both, and your team work and positive spirit in all that you do and look forward to sharing more of your new homestead journey. Peace.

I think your igloo was a bittttttt too big to keep you better insulated ;) But can someone talk about the fact that you guys stuck it out and FINISHED an igloo that big?!!??! That must've taken HOURSSSS

  • Pro-tip: putting down hay on the floor it will help keep the inside warmer.

    Jillian BaganJillian BaganMonth ago
    • Another tip that works is hot stones- I've warmed up semi-large stones on a camp fire and then once cool enough (you don't want them too hot that they will burn a hole) I put them in my sleeping bag.
