Snowball’s Guide to Perfect Snowball Making
Step 1: Find a bank of fresh snow. Remove the icier top layer and go for the fluffier snow just below the surface.
Step 2: Warmer snow is ideal. When snow is slightly melted, the “free water” forms a glue that will help to hold your snowball together.
Step 3: Get snow into both of your hands then bring them together. Wear light gloves, NOT mittens, which will stick to the snow.
Step 4: Apply pressure while rotating the snow evenly in your hands in order to form a sphere.
Step 5: Ready, aim, fire! Your snowball will go soaring through the air. Just make sure not to aim too close to any friends’ faces!
