zwischendrin has released SnowFlow v1.6. It is a 3D Studio Max plugin that creates realistic snow with ease! Apeerantly all you need to do is pick an object and SnowFlow does the snow for you!

The smaller image... I thought it was a render :D
Maybe its because of the lighting, or that all the background elements are super sharp.

Why not remodel resulting mesh and add/sculpt even more definition :]

You might have a point there... but then you can do the snow and have fun with other things :-)

Ha Ha Ha ... Perhaps I really should change it back to the actual render example. It was kind of a challenge call...

Hah Pawel you are everywhere :D
I knew that Zbrush at work could be handy... You can use it to add footsteps with foot decals, animals steps etc...
