The battle required 30 truckloads of snow poured into the icy battlefield before participants waged an epic snow war against each other. The event was used as a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club of King County and managed to raise $50,000.

Now that's what we call war with a purpose.

Anyone up to challenge this record? Don't forget your mittens.
