    A candle has been used in a quinzee with a snow floor for, well, longer than you and I have been around. You do need vents but I can't see a tarp getting set up tight enough to not allow fresh air in. Cooking inside a snow shelter or tarp is definitely something you don't want to do though.

    oh, you're a brave one!! My luck would have a freak wind coming up and pushing my tarp right into the flame.
