Hi everyone. i was wondering if anyone here has made a snowmaker or something similar to it. I'm asking because i want to have like a little snowboard session in the backyard with like boxes and things like that so i can practice riding rails and stuff.

Thanks

Use a skate board on dry land, and a snow board in snow. Thats how the flying tomato, (Shawn White) does it.

As for a snow machine, i beleave it's just really cold air, (31 degress f or colder), blown through a big fan with water misters squirting into the cold air stream.

I have a snow maker. It crystallizes water vapor out of the atmosphere using cold air, and the resulting particles then fall onto the surface of the earth. It is completely automated, so I do not have to do anything to start or stop it's operation. The only problem is that I can't control when it starts or stops. It usually covers my region in 15ft of snow during the periods in which it operates.

:D
