bahahahahah! there are a couple of ways! first - cold air, cold water and a pressure washer!

second - toss confetti all around. or make your own by cutting up white paper.

third - shake a snow globe.

and the fourth one involves a trailer out in the desert, some very volatile chemicals and a nutbag with a chemistry degree - you weren't expecting that one, were you? bahahahahahahah!

Rent a snow maker from a ski resort and have at it.

There are a couple of ways to get the ingredient necessary to make fake polymer snow. You can purchase the fake snow or you can harvest sodium polyacrylate from common household sources. You can find sodium polyacrylate inside disposable diapers or as crystals in a garden center, used to help keep soil moist.
All you need to do to make this type of fake snow is add water to the sodium polyacrylate. Add some water, mix the gel. Add more water until you have the desired amount of wetness. The gel will not dissolve. It's just a matter of how 'slushy' you want your snow.
Sodium polyacrylate 'snow' feels cool to the touch because it is mainly water. If you want to add more realism to the fake snow, you can refrigerate or freeze it. The gel will not melt. If it dries out, you can rehydrate it by adding water.

I don't make snow...I let Mother Nature do that! How? Magic!

You spray a fine mist of water as cold as possible, with a pressure washer that has a fine mist nozzle, into the air to freeze. Point your water spray upward at a 45° angle to maximize exposure. You need to do this in very cold temperature.
Water from a stream or river contains impurities which can act as nucleation sites to provide a surface on which snow crystals can grow which would make a better snowflake. :)

And folks that's why I don't make snow...I let Mother Nature do it. I don't get freezing temps often and my husband won't let me use the pressure washer (used it once on the car and had to have the car repainted).

freezing temps and a pressure washer if Mother Nature won't cooperate!

I live in Florida. Making snow is NOT an option here. Cold air, moisture and Mother Nature dumped enough of the crap on me when I lived up north that I'll pass on ever seeing it again....thank you very much.
