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
please post the results on how that worked out

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

At the most, you'll get a pile of ice; at the least, you'll get a puddle that freezes over night.
You need dust for snow to form. Otherwise it just turns to ice.
Awww, he looks so excited! I hope my kids turn out like this. :P
