Snow simulations?

Hey there… I’ve been playing around with particle systems + smoke simulations in blender to try and get some believable looking snow but with no much of a success. Basically I need to create all the snow that gets pushed from a skier’s skis :smiley:
Additionally I would like to try and do an avalanche simulation, but I really have no idea how to pull this off.

Can anyone give me any tips or point me to sources which can help me achieve something similar. (My main problem is getting the behavior of the snow correctly, rendering it isn’t that much of an issue).

I do understand this is a very broad subject and there is no step-by-step guides on how to do it, and it really comes with lots of playing around, but I would really appreciate some tips on how to get more realistic “snow behavior” for my particles and smoke.

PS : You can see the effect I am going for in this video here. (From 0:47 onwards)

Thank you so much in advance for any help you can provide :slight_smile:

Very late reply. But maybe this can help?
