So I was thinking, what if when its below freezing outside, you sprayed water into the air intake on a gas leaf-blower (mist setting on a hoe's handle?)would it have the same effect as a snow maker but on a smaller scale?
im pretty sure that doesnt work... the main ingredients for snow making are compressed air, water from a pressure washer, and a legitimateish snow gun/tgun. here is a link to a website with free plans http://www.snsnowmaking.com/2011/index.php
Get an air compressor and a hose and then fuck with it from there. There are some tutorials online. At least there used to be. Was going to make one about 10 years ago but that was when I stopped building my backyard stuff so there wasn't a point.

use a pressure washer and tape the nozzle to the end of the air outlet on your blower. you wont get much snow from this, but itll be really nice. check out skijay1997 on youtube for other snowmaking ideas.
