I don’t think I’d want to stand where most these guys are. Also, are those two horses going to be able to haul all that?!

        They probably used pulleys to stack them. Once you secure one layer you move to the next above it and so on and so forth.

    From what I am reading, a team of two horses can pull around 24,000 lbs on a sled on dirt. So, with the significantly lower friction of a sleigh on snow, they should be able to pull substantially more.
