How to roll snow instead of shoveling

Watch more with these video collections:

Don’t feel like shoveling the snow in front of your house? Want to create a clear path through the snow at the park? If the snow is wet and sticky, not fluffy or icy, and if it’s just a few inches deep, try rolling it. The technique is demonstrated in this snow rolling video by Randy Campbell.

In the video below, Bijan Seyednasrollah also starts with a small snowball. Watch him push it across the grass until it’s a bit too large to push. TIPS: Wear gloves, don’t roll up a hill, and when completed, push your roll over on its side so it doesn’t roll off on its own.
