The Snowballs are an all white team introduced in MarbleLympics 2016. The team is represented by Snow, Snowy, Snowflake and Snowstorm. In MarbleLympics 2016, the Snowballs did poorly and managed to finish only in 14th place after accumulating 14 points. The only medal they won was a bronze in the Relay Run event. Despite not finishing the race in the final run and coming last in the 4 way race, Snowballs were awarded a "consolation bronze" as the official has identified a defect in the lane 1 that the Snowballs were competing in. The Thunderbolts and Snowballs were both awarded the bronze medal and 5 points each. In the 2017 MarbleLympics Qualification round, Snowballs were tied for 13th and thus were eliminated before the final tournament. Snowblast also become a member of the 2018 Winter MarbleLympics.

The Snowballs were the host team of the 2018 MarbleLympics and thus automatically qualified. Their performance in the friendly made them big favorites, but their burn out in the beginning of the games was discouraging before their first gold medal in the sixth event, Team Pursuit. The team ended in seventh place overall.

After falling short of qualifying for the 2019 season, the Snowballs will participate in the MarbleLympics Showdown for one of eight spots in the 2020 MarbleLympics Qualifiers.

Trivia Edit

  • The Pinkies changed their uniforms in the 2018 Winter MarbleLympics to a much more distinct pink in order to not be confused with the Snowballs.
  • The Snowballs, so far, are the best performing host team.
  • The Snowballs are the only team to have ever won the Marble League Showdown championship. Furthermore, they have the singular record of having won at least one of each type of medal during the Showdown.
