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.

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.

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.

Why don't you try that out next time it's below freezing, and see just how well it works.

That's what I figured it was..but you'll need a powerful spray, and the right kind of mist for it to actually be snow like.
