    Yes it is true because as it rolled in the video it did get bigger but as seen in the end it busted. To stay together I think that it would help to have a steeper hill because I believe that it would compact the snow more and make it stronger.

    i think that if you would push a snow ball down a hill that it would brake but one thing that would work is if you puched it slower then it would pack and stay together.

    i think the myth is busted because it didnt pack together good enough and broke apart.

    I predict, that the snowball will roll down and crack well there's a cure for that.

    First you have to pack it better and that's what I would do.

    I think it is busted because it only got a tiny bit bigger then broke.

    I think to get it down the hill, you need to start with a smaller snowball

    I think it was busted because no mater what, it still broke apart. A way to make the snowball go down without breaking is to put it down a not as steep hill.

    I think that it is busted because it broke at the bottom.

    I think this myth is busted because, the snowball started to grow but then at the bottom the snowball broke apart.

    looks like it is a busted also a little bit of confirm cause it picked up 4 inches of snow

    For it to keep going and pick up snow, it needs to be better packing snow. I think this is confirmed though, because it did pick up snow, but then it was busted and it broke. - Shea

    I think this myth was busted because when the snow ball went down the hill it got about 3 inches bigger than broke to lots of little pieces. I think the snow ball would have stayed up longer and may have gotten bigger if the hill wasn't so steep.

    I don't think the snowball will get bigger as it goes down the hill. It was a very nice video and it explained a bunch. I always thought it would get bigger as it went down a hill until I saw your guys video.

    i don't think it will work because it probably will hit a rock or go too fast.

    I think that both of those myths were busted because the snowball got a little bigger but then it just crumbled into pieces. The other myth was busted because hardly any snow stuck to her.

    i pridicted that the snow ball would fall apart because bumps would
    make it fall apart . also that wen she rolled down the hill she would not be a snow ball cause if you roll in the snow you dont turn into a snow ball .

    I don't think it was busted i think that it did gather snow as it went down the hill but it did break up but only because it gathered to much if you would do it again with a smaller snowball it would work a little better

    Before it happened I guest that it would start falling apart and go into pieces and it did.I think it got to heavy and the snow slid off and then it just fell apart because it was uneven.
