Under the right combination of snow, wind, temperature, and moisture, snow rollers can form. They form when strong, but not too strong, winds blow light and sticky snow into a roll to create large, cylindrical, and usually hollow snowballs. When strong wind is not present, gravity has been known to help snow rollers form on a hill. These have also been called snow bales as they can look like snowy bales of hay.
