Looking for a photoreal snow shader or a tutorial to create one

As the subject describes, I'm looking for a realistic snow shader or a tutorial to create one. I've dug through Highend 3D to no avail. Maybe someone here can help. I appreciate it.

Hi Abie. I was wondering if you're still about, what you came up with for your snow shader? I am trying to create some snow in my Maya scene, have the particles iwth fields all set up, and turned my particles to sprites, just need the textures for them.... hoping you can help...

Hey how are you? Here is a link that was given to me, and another that I found on my own. I don't know how involved you want to get with this, just in case you really want to get your hands dirty, I gave you the link to the Gnomon DVD on snow. As for me, I totally abandoned it and went another route entirely. Let me know how it turns out for you. Cheers!

Here's a snowflake tutorial i dug up as well; this one was really informative as well. The english is a bit off but you'll figure it out. If you have a dingbat font with snowflakes, you can by-pass the modeling part by using Zaxwerks 3D Invigorator for AE.
