“When I heard this (snow volleyball) was huge in Europe, I was really excited about bringing it to the U.S. because nobody has done it.”Lucia Howard

Snow Volleyball is growing in popularity across the pond in Europe and Steamboat resident Lucia Howard is excited to start snow volleyball in the Colorado high country in April. The Steamboat Pilot reports the snow volleyball tournament will be held on April 6 and 7 at the sand volleyball courts near Howelsen Hill.Teams can register early at snowvolleyusa.com for $90 until Tuesday, March 26 or for a late registration fee of $110 through April 3. The tournament will have a cash prize of $300 for a competitive division, and medals for winners of the recreational division.

Sounds like a great opportunity to switch up sports for a day and get your best ski buddy to go Goose and Maverick for the afternoon. Lucia Howard suggest clothes you might wear cross country skiing as appropriate attire but obviously shirtless, aviators and jeans will make you an instant crowd favorite:
