Monte Zoncolan event sets pace in Italian snow volleyball tour
Action at the Monte Zoncolan stop of the Italian snow volleyball tour.
The Italian snow volleyball tour will next stop in Breuil-Cervinia of the Aosta Valley, before the 'Grand Finale' at Prato Nevoso at the end of the month, which with over 350 participants has been the largest snow volleyball event in the world for years.
The setting with the two snow volleyball courts in front of the Baita Goles mountain lodge during the Monte Zoncolan stop of the Italian tour.
The Prato Nevoso event, in the Piedmont, will be held in combination with the European Snow Volleyball Tour stop, which already boasts the confirmed presence of Troy Field and the McKibbin brothers, Maddison and Riley - directly from the USA's AVP.

"The Acqua San Bernardo Snow Volley Tour is growing at every stage," said Matteo Carlon, president of organisers Snow Volley Italia. "Both from a technical and a qualitative point of view".
