What is snow volleyball?

Snow Volleyball is a unique winter sport that combines traditional beach volleyball with the thrill of snow sports. The court is set up in the same way as a traditional beach volleyball court, with two teams of two players each and an 18m x 9m playing area. However, instead of sand, the court is made of packed snow. Players use snowshoes to move around the court and place their hands, feet, or any other body parts in the snow to hit the ball back and forth. The same rules of play apply as beach volleyball – including service rotation, team switching after every seven points, and a best-of-three set system.

Snow Volleyball is an incredibly fun, challenging and exciting way to stay active during the winter months. Whether you’re an experienced volleyball player or just looking for a new winter activity, Snow Volleyball is sure to add some excitement and energy to your day. So grab your team, put on your snowshoes, and get ready to have some fun!
