The snow has been pushed to a pile to clear the parking lot. The bigger area you need to clear, the higher the pile. Kids like them, to play king of the hill, to slide down or dig tunnels. But if the snow has been piled with a machine, it's likely to be too icy to dig tunnels. A few days ago a kid was (non-fatally) injured when a huge lump of frozen snow rolled down from top of the hill. But the snow here is fluffy right now.
