Yukigassen Snow Ball Fights (Villars)

Feb 2, 2019 @ 9:30 AM - 2:00 PM

Free

No one said snow ball fights were just for kids.

At the Yukigassen snow ball fights, they make it pretty serious: Several teams of seven people will compete against each other in a special snow ball fight arena at the Sports Centre in Villars.

The name Yukigassen is Japanese and stands for “snow battle”. It is an official sport in Japan, as well as in Norway, Canada, Australia and other parts of the world. It is about time we made more use of our snow supplies in winter… And there is so much growth potential!

Who of our Swiss readers has not participated in snow ball fights during childhood?
