Ukrainian translation:rosrostatysia, zbilshuvatysia, narostaty (yak snigoviy klubok)
Explanation:
I'm sorry, my browser won't cooperate, Cyrillic letters come out garbled. I hope you are able to spell the words I'm suggesting in Ukrainian. Unfortunately, the term "to snowball" does not translate literally, so if you want to preserve the image, the best approach would be to use a descriptive phrase, as suggested above.
