Minecraft Block

Snowballs are obtained whenever snow is destroyed with Shovel . Four Snowballs can then be crafted into a Snow Block or can be thrown. If it is destroyed with anything other than a shovel , nothing is dropped. As of 1.5, snow is able to be stacked in layers above the ground, causing snow-banks that the player may walk through. This gives the world a more realistic feel to it, but can cause clutter when the player does not frequently visit a snowy area. These snow layers can be stacked up to 8, which than will look like a normal snow block . Note, that the layered snow will be destroyed if Water is poured on it, but snow blocks won't (making it good for secret messages). 3 snow blocks can be used to create snow slabs in survival, but you will still get snowballs after you lay them down.Once Snow has been destroyed, the ground will remain clear, until such time as it snows again. This makes Snow a Renewable Resource.
