A large room (250' x 30' x 50') scooped by Jim Nepstad, Stan Allison, and Bob Kobza on July 19, 1994, after the discoverers of Necessary Evil reported walking through some moonmilk in Blizzard Boulevard. This turned out to be a bypass around the extremely fragile Blizzard.

Natural Entrance of Wind Cave

Winds caused by changes in barometric pressure are what give Wind Cave its name. These winds have been measured at the cave's walk-in entrance at over 70 mph. The winds at the natural entrance of the cave attracted the attention of Native Americans and early settlers.
