The event was organized by McGill students, Derrick Linker and Marti Moshfeghi, who were looking to relieve stress during exam period.

They made the call on social media, “take a study break to hit someone in the face with a snowball, great stress reliever,” they posted.

Students from Concordia Univerity and Université de Montréal also joined the snow battle.
