SG6 Snowmaking Head
  • The head is fabricated from solid anodized aluminum yielding a commercial quality Real Snow Maker available for the home or small business owner. Through precision machining, our exacting standards for proper nozzle alignment and quality construction are achieved.
  • The internal structure provides for a very durable product. The inner air and water chambers are pressure rated for 5000psi!
  • The solid aluminum head acts as a heat sink to warm the air chamber and cool the water temperature resulting in an increased snow production volume. Cooling fins create an increased surface area and aid in thermo regulation.
  • The New design helps prevent air nozzle freezing issues that can occur with designs utilizing multiple internal components.
  • Integrated LED plume illumination allows for easy visual system check and exciting lighted snowmaking display.


  • It has taken years of research utilizing everything from flow meters to microbolometers to be able to design the ULTIMATE home snow making nozzle. Based on our findings we have precision nozzles that are now manufactured specifically for SAH™. The SG6-Xstream snowmaker™ incorporates two of these upper misting nozzles.
  • The latest in SAH’s™ line of nozzles is our precision designed, stainless steel air nozzle. Working in combination with the nucleation nozzle, an incredibly complex nozzle, the exact self-regulating requirements for the perfect seeding conditions are created.


  • Two, ten foot, 3000psi, high pressure hoses, for air and water.
  • The air hose comes with a removable, ¼” NPT, quick connect air adapter making it compatible with SAH’s™ 5.3cfm air compressor and most other compressors on the market.
  • The water hose comes with a 22mm pressure washer adapter making it compatible with SAH’s™ 2.5gpm snowmaking pump/pressure washer and most small pressure washers (1.3-2.5gpm) designed for home use.


  • The stand has been redesigned for safety, stability, and to handle the demands of our new snowmakers.
  • Ratcheting gear lock system for adjustable head angle position
  • Quick release legs for easy compact storage, with an opening at the insertion point that allows for additional sand weighting of the frame.
  • Constructed of 2” diameter anodized aluminum tube
  • Sandbag included

Requirements for Operation

  • Temperature 29° Fahrenheit / -2°Celsius or less. See Snowmaking Chart.
  • Air Compressor – electric or gas: rated for continuous use (not oil free) with a minimum output of 5.3CFM at 90PSI. (Minimum maintained operation pressure of 50psi) SNOWatHOME™ recommends the SAH-PCAC 5.3 Porter Cable Air Compressor.
  • Pressure Washer – any electric or gas: rated from 1.3GPM to 2.5GPM (more water equals more snow) with a pressure range of 1200psi to 4000psi. SNOWatHOME™ recommends the SAH-25EP 2.5GPM Snowmaking Pump/Pressure Washer.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

How much snow do SAH™ snowmakers make?

The volume of snow produced depends on many variables. The two largest contributors however are the water volume and weather conditions. The only one you can control though is the volume of water you are pushing through your snowmaker. The higher the flow (GPM – gallons per minute) of your pressure washer the more snow you will make. With that in mind the SG4 works with pressure washers rated from 1.3gpm to 2.1gpm. The SG6 works with pressure washers rated from 1.3-2.5gpm and the SG7 is fully adjustable from 1.3gpm to 8.0gpm. Under good snowmaking weather conditions the SG4 combined with a 2.1gpm pressure washer can produce up to 60 cubic feet per hour, the SG6 with a 2.5gpm pump will make up to 80 cubic feet per hour and the SG7 with a 7.5gpm pump will make up to 225 cubic feet per hour. The best example we can give on how much snow can be made comes from photos our customers provided from past contests. Most entries show the result of one night of snowmaking. Buying Viewing the quick compare of the available SAH packages, you can evaluate which snowmaker and pump combination best suits your needs.

What weather conditions do I need to make snow?

In order to make snow you need freezing weather conditions, there is no way around this. Click Here to view our snowmaking weather chart and weather tool to determine if snowmaking is possible where you live.

What else is required to operate the snowmakers?

You will need a small, continuous duty, compressor for all three models. A compressor with the rating of 5.4CFM @ 90PSI will work with all our snowmakers. (See Compressor Ratings below) The SG4 works with pressure washers with a GPM (gallons per minute) rating of 1.3 to 2.1gpm. The SG6 works with pressure washers with a GPM (gallons per minute) rating of 1.3 to 2.5gpm. The SG7 is adjustable from 1.3 to 8.0gpm for high volume snow making. Click here for a quick compare.

Is a SNOWatHOME™ snowmaking system easy to set up?

Absolutely! Click here to watch our demonstration video to see how easy it is to set up a SAH™ snowmaking system.

Can I purchase a SNOWatHOME™ snowmaker locally?

Yes! We have several SNOWatHOME™ dealers located across the country and in Germany. You can find them here or on the dealer locator link located at the bottom of every page.

What is the cost of adding 220V outdoor power supply for the larger pumps?

Because the electric pumps are much quieter than the gas pumps, most customers want to purchase the electric option. However, many people don’t have a 220V power supply available where they would like to hook up their pump. To add one is as simple as a quick phone to your local electrician and have him perform the wiring for you. This is a relatively easy task and should run between $100-$150. A cost most will find to be nominal for the noise reduction benefit when running their snowmaker all night. If you are concerned that you will not be able to run your snowmaker far enough away from your house, consider adding a high pressure extension hose (available in 50′ and 100′ lengths).

What does it cost to operate the SG7 Snowmaking System?

If you are utilizing all electrical components for both the Pump and Air Compressor, the average cost is about $0.78 per hour. To break it down for you, both the 6gpm and 7.5gpm High Volume Pressure Washers require approximately 5.29kWh. The air compressor requires 1.8kWh. Figuring the average cost per kWh in the US as of January 2011 was 11 cents per kWh we have the following equation: (5.29kWh + 1.8kWh) x $0.11 = $0.78 per hour. If you know what your current electrical costs are you can plug it into the same equation for a more personal estimate.

What is the difference between internal and external mix snow makers, and which one makes more snow?

Internal mix snow makers operate by mixing compressed air and water inside the plumbing of the snow maker. This design does work but it has its drawbacks. One of the issues with this design is maintaining the air and water pressure balance to keep an even flow of water coming out of the snowmaker. This issue causes a reduction in efficiency. Another problem is the likelihood of having water flow back into the airline and doing permanent damage to your air compressor. Internal mix free plan designs can be found here.

External mix snow makers mix air and water outside the body of the snowmaker. This design eliminates most of the problems associated with internal mixing. External mixing completely eliminates the issue of water entering the air line because they are not connected. External mixing also utilizes the water and air more efficiently (less energy). The SNOWatHOME™ line of snowmakers and E-Type free plan design are all external mix designs.

I live in a warm climate area and want to make snow, what are my options?

Many warm areas still experience a few nights of freezing temperatures. As we say here at SAH, “It only takes one cold night to make a big pile of snow at home.” We recommend using our SAH Weather Tool to determine how many nights you could have made snow in the past to see if it is possible to make snow in your area. Unfortunately any snow maker we talk about on the web site will not work when the temperature is above freezing. There are very few options when it comes to making real snow in warm weather. The only method we know of is basically a process of shaving ice. Click here to see a company that does this process.

Customer Testimonials

“THANK YOU for allowing me to love winter again! It has been a long 11 months since the pandemic started, and I honestly thought I had lost my ability to have fun. I honestly feel like a kid again! Anytime the temps are where they need to be I'm outside making snow. The thing is insane and the hill on the side of our home as piles and piles of snow on it for sledding. My neighbors think I'm nuts as I'm out there at all hours of the night and morning making snow and just standing there marveling at the thing. At one point the police stopped at my house as they thought something was wrong! Anyway, the system is great, it makes tons of snow, and the customer service is even better than the equipment. Thank you, Matt and the entire team, from SNOWatHOME for jump starting my fun again!"

– Geof Gutauskas

“Matt and Snow at Home have been overly accommodating with my first experiences making snow at home. Definitely a learning curve, but when I made a mistake, for example the air compressor falling over and breaking my air compressor hose, Matt sent out right away. Same when the air compressor arrived direct from Porter Cable and shipper forgot to include air intake valves/mufflers, Matt shipped some to me so I could use right away.Perfect product for a change of scene winter activity for the DIYer. Definitely requires understanding and patience (for correct weather conditions) but well worth the reward when conditions are correct.”
