Faux boulders: paperback wire lath...bend it beat it to shape, then plaster it with trinity white cement with the stain of your choice mixed in; or: boxes covered with garbage bags, then covered with chicken wire, then covered with about 3 inches of pigmented hypertufa (portland cement, sand, peat moss mix). Gardenweb has a hupertufa forum that is interesting.

This is a shelter most outdoor enthusiasts could probably build. Note that this shelter is NOT at the bottom of the hill. It will probably take some work to level the floor of this shelter. This is where a portable shovel comes in handy!
