SnowBall Effect

In nature the snowball effect is a process that starts from an initial state of small significance and builds upon itself, becoming larger and larger. The snow is falling, the pines are getting white and in the air you can smell cinnamon and wine. Walking on the street you can hear the ice cracking and an Italian old woman, wearing a weird red hat, is screaming “VIN BRULE’ CHI VUOLE DEL VIN BRULE’?”. This is the beginning of a great adventure, which will connect you with people from all over Europe. You wonder about what’s gonna happen, but, believe us: you’ll see the snowball effect coming, as soon as you step out of the train.

“The SnowBall Effect” is a NYE event that will bring you to a huge scout house in the middle of the Lombardian Alps, where you will be able to experience the original and rural Italian culture. AEGEE-Brescia will make you and your foreign fellas experience the best our mountains can offer. You will have the chance to feel wind spitting the snow on your face while alpine skiing, to train yourself with cross country skiing, to get lost in the woods walking with snowshoes, to roll in the snow while sliding with our bobsledding and to enjoy some romance while ice skating on the music of Michael Bublé. Remember, the night won’t be the right time to sleep! You will enjoy a traditional New Year Dinner, a white party, a dinner with the murder and much more!

Our perfect participant is open minded, motivated to dive deeply into Italian culture, and ready  to experience all the winter sports together with mulled wine. We will show you how Italians celebrate the winter season and we want you to share its magic with us - as Jean says, don’t be shy!
