Can that be done?

I thought the snapshot LV had to share the same VG/PV as the base LV.

Is there some way to force the snapshot on to separate physical drives.

In my case, I have 2 RAID-1 drives (3ware hardware based) that I snapshot every night.

If I could force the issue, I would consider putting in a 3rd drive dedicated to holding the snapshot.
