The most interesting experience in the snow shelter was the stillness. Compared to a tent, the snow shelter completely protected from the wind and noise from the snow storm that hit us the second night. I can definitely understand why some of the Denali climbers elect to build snow shelters as opposed to staying in a tent.

These conditions aren't the easiest to ascend a 14er, but Quandary is a fairly easy climb in the summer. The trail is fairly well marked (assuming it isn't covered completely in snow) and makes for an obvious route to the summit.
