Anyone know of an "Igloo" cache in the Ottawa area?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone heard of a geocache hidden in someome's backyard in an igloo or a snow fort, somewhere in the Ottawa area? I remember seeing it a year or two ago and wondered if it's back in action again. Naturally, I forgot to record the name of the cache or its ID number!

Were you thinking of Quinzee, M.D (GC18000)?

Thanks, swimmrguy, that's the one! I see that it was only active for one season and then archived.

 

P.S. Hi Tequila!

Yes, a couple of winters ago. model12 set up the quinze in his backyard when we had 400 cm of snow.

 

I don't believe the snow conditions have allowed for a quinze cache in the past couple of winters...

Yes, the snow accumulation the last few years has been so dismal, and the temperature so warm that I couldn't maintain another quinzee. If the weather cooperates, it'll return though.
