What our customers say:

  • I highly recommend Mel Chikato and Reliable Snow Service. The City of Brea purchased 40 tons of snow for 9 years from him and had 300-500 kids and adults playing in the snow at our annual Snow Play Day. We were extremely pleased with his service. He has a quality product, efficient, pleasant to work with, reliable and always on time.

  • Mel Chikato provided the snow for the City of Glendale, CA Winter Wonderland event for more than 15 years. The free play areas and snow slides, comprised of 60 – 80 tons of snow, were enjoyed by over 5,000 attendees annually. Mel provided outstanding customer service and a first-rate snow product. He and his team were conscientious, on time and always accommodating. I highly recommend Reliable Snow Service and give them a five-star rating!

  • I want to thank you again for your attendance at Snowfest and give you the “snow vendor” information you had requested. We use Reliable Snow Service. I highly recommend getting a quote from Mel, as he offers competitive pricing, is extremely professional to work with, and very knowledgeable on your snow needs and layout.
