Snow day! Transform into a giant snowball and bowl down foes! Roll them up and crash into a wall for an ice-cold strike!
— Snow Bowl's Flavor Text • Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Snow Bowl is a Super Ability that appears in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, obtained by inhaling a Super Chilly. This ability is an upgraded version of Ice. Functionally, Snow Bowl is reminiscent of the Rolling Snowball (Ice + Ice) Mix ability from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, allowing Kirby to move over lava and absorb enemies into the enlarging snowball.
