The Second Yukigassen Championship
On the 7th of February Russkie Ptostori and the top St. Petersburg hotels celebrated the anniversary of the Olympic Games with the Second Yukigassen Championship.
The representative of the top 5 and 4 star hotels and their fierce support team of friends and family gathered on our usual game field in Okhta Park, a winter resort, located several kilometers away from the city. Boys from the children shelter “Nadezhda” were invited by Russkie Prostori to join the competition and came out among the best snowball fighters. Jesting and talkative MC, music, snacks and hot drinks perfectly complimented festive and energetic atmosphere of the event.
After many rounds and more than 2000 snowballs thrown in the games the team of Kempinsky Hotel Moika 22 won the first place in the fight and proved itself to be a well-deserved participant of the 20th Yukigassen European Championship 2015. The team will send its best player to the championship in Kemijärvi, Finland that will be organized from the 27th to 29th of March.
W hotel and Corinthia Nevsky Palace Hotel were rewarded with the second and the third places. Angleterre Hotel Rocco Forte and Astoria Rocco Forte Hotel shared the Audience Choice Award.
We would like to thank all the participants and their vigorous support teams for their competitive but very friendly spirit.
By the way we have more exciting news for snowball fighters - the first weekend of February has become the Official Celebration of the Winter Sports in Russia and Russkie Prostori offers to honor this date every year with Yukigassen Championship among hotels.
We will be happy to arrange your corporate competition in Snowball Fight any snowy day in Russia!
Looking forward to Yukigassen 2016!
