Australian Ski Resort Makes Snow From Sewage

Mount Buller Resort, an Australian ski resort, has reported that
it had been able to convert treated sewage into snow.  They also
claim that it is so clean that you can even eat it.  Officials
claim that they have the facilities to remove the bacteria and
viruses from waste produced by thousands of skiers.  It could be
a number of years before a full-scale filtering plant is built

probably shouldn't eat it either!

I bet they actually use "gray" water - not yellow.  Shouldn't eat gray snow either.

Snowmakers have been using bacteria Pseudomonas syringae(also called SnoMax) as a nucleating agent for years to make snow at higher temperatures and with finer crystals. 

Didn't know you could get your daily intake of protein by eating snow, eh? [:o] [:o]

Skid marks in the snow.
