Not seeing it.​—msh210 18:22, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps a synonym for a snow cannon and snowmachine? —CodeCat 21:37, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
now cited I believe. Thryduulf (talk) 12:00, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
I don't know if I'd pass it on those citations. Two of them seem legit, while two seem to be confusions concerning snow-blowers, items which blow away snow. At the very least, those two don't appear to support the def given. -Atelaes λάλει ἐμοί 12:59, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
The citations seem like independent recoinages (See how easy.) based on the morphology. Also "snower blower" and "blow snower" seem more like wordplays than words. DCDuring TALK 14:05, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
I've added several more cites. One is mention-only, but I included it because I think it reinforces DCDuring's accurate statement that these are independent renonces. (Easy, indeed!) Though I have no idea what the 1979 cite means. —RuakhTALK 14:45, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
I think the 1976 sense is "one who is good at 'snowing'; a seducer." See also snow job. DCDuring TALK 14:54, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
