Has anyone tried using babypowder and glue to replicate snow on the ground?
Any advice?

I brushed on diluted white glue and sprinkled on crushed white chalk pastels. Overall it turned out nice but it doesn't have the sparkle that real snow has.

that the train guys use called, coincidently enough.....snow. It might be a bit on the pricy side as I find most things model train related are.

I'd recomend it. It's designed for railway layouts so one container goes a long way..

Here is a base I made for an FW190 based at Herdla Norway from JG5 Eismeer using Micro balloons for snow.
