Christmas weather forecast: as much snow as you want

Snow Business has more than 25 years’ experience working with the film and television industry creating the right effects for snow scenes

A white Christmas is guaranteed, with the help of a leading UK special effects firm.

Snow Business can now supply real fresh snow to customers looking to create their own piece of Christmas magic.

Scientists from the Gloucestershire-based firm use a mixture of nitrogen, air and water to produce the safe and natural snow which is then packed in insulated boxes and shipped direct to your doorstep.
Just 24-hours after placing your order you will have all the ingredients you need for your family to have fun whether constructing that perfect snowman or crafting your own sledging run.

"Snow Business has more than 25 years’ experience working with the film and television industry creating the right effects for snow scenes," said Darcey Crownshaw, managing director of Snow Business.
“We have led the way in snow science and now our technicians have developed this service for perfect Christmas present.
“Whatever the weather this year you can guarantee a white Christmas. Once we’ve delivered your snow order the only limit after that is your imagination.”

Customers can have anything from one box to 300 boxes of real fresh snow delivered direct to their door. For larger quantities, Snow Business has the capability to make snow on-site.
Darcey Crownshaw said: “We've worked on some of the biggest films in the business, from Narnia to James Bond. Everyone knows what a magical effect snow can have.

“Our new real snow service means this Christmas can be a white Christmas.”
