Looking to create a certain atmosphere for an event? Or to generate the perfect special effects for that ideal film or photography shot? With the help of the Arctic Snow Machine, you'll never find yourself waiting and hoping on some wintery weather to provide you with the ideal back drop. This brilliant Le Maitre device provides variable output snow and configurable flake size to let you get the perfect style of snow for your specific application.

Out Of Sight, Working Hard

Designed to be a compact piece of equipment, the Arctic Snow Machine is small enough to be slipped out of sight somewhere, ideal for providing an illusion of real snow. If you are setting up an event of some kind which you would like to have a snowy atmosphere, the Arctic Snow Machine can easily be mounted to a ceiling, boom or anything else via its convenient handling and mounting points. The super quiet operation of the device further allows it to blend in with its surroundings, making the Arctic Snow Machine an ideal piece to use for a show or event.

Integrated Controls

The Arctic Snow Machine can be controlled either with the  remote control supplies or hooked into a DMX  system for easy control from an existing equipment setup, letting theatre techs easily integrate the Snow Machines controls into their light, sound and other control boards. This makes it super easy to turn the machine on or off, adjust the intensity of the flow or the size of the snowflakes without having to pause what you're doing or go to the machine itself.


Easily refill the built in 5 litre fluid holder to keep the Arctic Snow Machine ready to operate whenever you need it. The Snow Machine is rated to consume 1 litre of fluid for every 650 seconds of operation (exact numbers will vary with the use of the machines variable settings.) This allows you to get roughly ten minutes of operation per litre of fluid. A full 5 litre tank is nearly an hours’ worth of snow! Le Maitre’s Arctic snow fluid is ideally formulated for use with the Arctic Snow Machine.
