Desperate for an alpine fix, but stuck in a snow-free country? Aching to get your board on snow when all that falls is light drizzle? Then ache no more.

These guys have figured out how to make a snow canon using nothing more than a humble garden sprinkler. They just let water flow through the domestic irrigation device and, Bob's your uncle, instant snow appears.

Granted, they did it in a particularly cold Winnipeg, Canada. In fact it was around about -50f. So there you have it. All you need is a garden sprinkler and conditions already cold enough to furnish you with all the snow you already need. Perfect.

So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and make it snow.
