The past few decades have seen tremendous growth in the game of snowball. Twenty years ago there were a few snowflakes on the slopes. It is considered an extreme game of rebels.
Snowball players saw snowboarding as a nuisance that usually takes place on a mountain. Now, there are as many snowball players as there are skiers. Why is snowball so popular? Why are snowballs so addictive?
Faster, faster and faster. Skiing is for you if you want speed. In a downhill race, skis will beat the snowboard every time, but the speed at which you can go down is simple or something else. Snowboarders are very fast and the feeling that a snowball player goes through his board and body often causes them to realize that they are actually going faster. The snowboard is even more exciting because of the level of control a boarder feels on their board. Speed and subtle controls lead to a more exciting run than just speed.
The versatility of a board is another factor in its growing popularity. A board can go anywhere.
Its broad base means that landing through the dust that overwhelms most snowboarders is not a problem. It is easier to carve and cut from a board than skis, which means it is easier on a board to cross a path that stretches over an obstacle. Boarders can travel to a place where skiers do not dare to go.
The trick that most snowball players absorb is that there are more ways to look cool on a mountain with a snowboard than a pair of skis. Never underestimate the cool-looking attraction. Each snowboard can be used in a bowl or half-pipe, and special skis are often needed to remove the most attractive tricks.
The ultimate addiction factor in a snowball game is one that is shared with skiers. Silence. That crunchy silence is only when you go down a mountain. That feeling of speed and loneliness is only with the sound of your board on the snow.
It’s an amazing feeling that’s hard to duplicate. It’s definitely addictive. Why do people drag their crushed and injured bodies along a mountain? They like to panic. They are addicted.
