To make a snow explode fx:

First, creat a few textures:

Next, use the textures to make materials: #1. material for the bursting snow

#2. material for the snow puff :

#3. material for the ice shards:

Then, make emitters: emitter for the snow cloud:

#2. emitter for the particle locaton:

 

What I learned: use Sphere of InitialLocation to make a semisphere shape of emitter

(Sphere: This module sets the location of the particles of this emitter when they are spawned using a sphere shape.)
