Why is a quinzee primarily a recreational shelter?
Answer Because it uses up a tremendous amount of energy, usually makes you wet while you make it and can take a very long time to make.
I'm not saying it can't work or hasn't worked in a survival situation. It can and it has. However, it's a tough go and there are many other better options if available. That said if you have no other way, then yes, it can work in a pinch and the odd survival victim in the high mountains has dug into the snow bank to get out of the wind for the night.Increase your chances of surviving any situation.
