Snow has normally a temperature of about 0 to minus a few degrees. The snow is a good insulator against any temperature fluctuations, which means that the temperature inside the igloo rarely change significantly. When it is full with guests and everyone eats hot food the temperature may rise slightly but is soon back down to normal.
