Any body heard of the backyard blizzard? It's this personal snowmaking machine that you plug into your hose and it makes one inch of snow per hour over like the entire yard and it kicks so much ass. For more info got to www.backyardblizzard.com and check it out. perfect if you've got a hilly backyard, for making jumps for rails in the summer. i want one so bad. they're like $2500 i think. Not bad for snow in the summer, eh?
