simple, grab a pressure washer and leave it on in the cold. it's not cold enough here or i would =[
i've tried that, just makes an ice layer good for a base to build up real snow on. need to mix the high pressure water with compressed air at a certian ratio and pressure.
my thoughts exactly

He didn't actually build that himself from scratch. He could have gotten free plans online from various websites that offer them or bought a snow making kit form www.snowstormsnowmaking.com or www.snowathome.com

Most likely he used a kit from here:

Found this via Google by searching for DIY snow maker
Awww, he looks so excited! I hope my kids turn out like this. :P

Forest said the machine wasn't cheap. He had to save his allowance to pay for $500 in supplies, but he said it was all worth it. how long would he have to save for!?!
He probably didn't have to save for very long, median income in West Lynn is 75 K versus 42 K for the rest of oregon.
Insane! But $500... I wish I could have that. :P Wow, that kid is crazy! (In a cool way).
