You need to see how incredibly awesome Disney's new animated snow technology is. They created it for Frozen—their new (non-Pixar) 3D animation feature. This video presented at the latest Siggraph shows how it works:

I always marvel at the math and physics geniuses who get to make these reality-mimicking algorithms.
