Sledding in Florida? No problem

Snowmaking system can make your own Winter X Games


You may want to skip this item if you live anywhere near Denver, but those of you in warmer climes who need a frost fix might want to check out the "SG5-LED Snowmaker."

Uncrate says this machine is the "highest-volume snowmaker available" (presumably referring to home use). If it's hooked up to a "6GPM Snowmaking Pump," for example, the system can churn out 180 cubic feet per hour. That's enough to put on a mini-version of some Winter X Games events in your backyard, though the neighbors might not be too thrilled. But you might have to leave it on for awhile before attempting to break any snow angel records.
