A Conversation for How to Build a Snowman

It's a bit of a cheat, but there is an alternative way to make a snowman in record time.
Fill a dustbin or similar container with snow, using a shovel to scoop up snow & pack it in. Beware of pressing so hard that the bin splits or the snow becomes so compacted it won't come out. Upend the bin & turn out the snow. If desired, repeat with a smaller container e.g. a bucket, to form a head.

How heavy is a bin that large?

Very! You need two people to tip it on it's side & then upside down & hope the snow comes out OK.
