It has blocked the mountain, the mountain road is covered with snow, and it can’t go down again. Two people thought of a way: hand snowball, egg size, snowball stacked together. It wasn’t long before a huge snowball was made. The two men used all their strength to push the snowball down the mountain. The snowball rolled faster and faster and bigger and bigger, and wrapped two people in the middle. Suddenly, when I met a high ridge, the snowball fell heavily, and there was a loud bang, and the snowball was scattered. Two people climbed out of the snowball and got nothing hurt. Later, people went to the mountain known as “mountain snow pack”, then, has been a homonym for “xuebaoshan”.
