Side Sleepers

Overall, the Casper Snow Mattress performed the most consistently for the side sleepers on our team. It was especially comfortable for those under 230 pounds since it provided the right balance of spinal alignment and pressure relief. Side sleepers can develop pressure points beneath their hips and shoulders if they sleep on a mattress that’s too firm.

While those above 230 pounds also liked this mattress during testing, it wasn’t quite firm enough to offer proper support.

Back Sleepers

Like side sleepers, back sleepers also need a blend of pressure relief and spinal support. However, they tend to favor mattresses that are on the firmer side. This model’s medium (5) firmness and excellent pressure relief were a great fit for back sleepers on our team who weigh under 230 pounds, but it didn’t offer sufficient support for those over 230 pounds.

Back sleepers need strong structure beneath their midsections to prevent lower back pain. The Snow Mattress’ zoned memory foam layer has extra lumbar support that ensures even spinal alignment. The polyfoam comfort system cushions the body without compressing too deeply, which helps keep back sleepers situated comfortably atop their mattress.

Stomach Sleepers

Of all the sleeper types, stomach sleepers need the most support. A mattress that is too soft allows the hips to sink too deeply, throwing the spine out of alignment. 

Stomach sleepers under 230 pounds who prefer mattresses on the softer side might find this model a suitable choice, as it isn’t so soft that they’ll sink entirely into the mattress’ layers. However, it is likely too soft for those who weigh above 230 pounds. A firmer model may be a better choice for most stomach sleepers.

Mattress Performance

In addition to the hands-on feedback from our team, we conduct a number of quantitative tests in our Test Lab. The below ratings are based on the experience of our testers.

Motion Isolation

7.5/10

The Snow Mattress does an excellent job of preventing motion transfer. The pocketed coil support core is responsive and provides some bounce, but the memory foam comfort system absorbs that movement and restricts it from moving across the bed’s surface.

Our testers did notice a bit of motion transfer on the Snow Mattress, but it was minimal, and all but the most sensitive sleepers should find this model’s motion isolation adequate.

Pressure Relief

8/10

This mattress’ zoned support, responsive coils, and memory foam combine to provide better than average pressure relief. The coils within the support core are able to move independently from one another and compress at different rates.

The memory foam resting above the coils has a three-zone system that adds support beneath your midsection to align your spine while cushioning pressure-prone areas.

Though the Snow Mattress didn’t achieve a perfect score for pressure relief, many sleepers will find it comfortable and effective.

Temperature Control

7.5/10

It’s tough to make a mattress that hugs your body without absorbing significant body heat, but the Snow Mattress manages to rise to the occasion. This model has multiple foam layers but prevents substantial heat retention by layering the foam atop an airy pocketed coil support core and incorporating proprietary cooling technology.

Memory foam conforms closely, and as a result, it has a tendency to trap heat. To combat this issue, this model’s memory foam layer includes patented Heat Delete bands that are designed to draw heat away from your body.

Our testing team found that this model regulates temperature well enough to be a worthwhile choice for all but the hottest sleepers, who may prefer a model that substitutes latex for memory foam.

Edge Support

7/10

Though it has a foam perimeter reinforcement, the Snow Mattress only achieved average scores during edge support testing in our lab. We found the foam isn’t firm enough to keep the edges rigid with direct pressure application.

People who need added support to get in and out of bed might want to look for a model that uses coil reinforcement rather than foam.

Ease of Movement

6.5/10

Our testers found the Snow Mattress quite easy to move around on, especially considering its foam comfort system. The memory foam relieves pressure while the pocketed coil support core and polyfoam prevent sleepers from feeling like they’re sinking into the mattress.

Beds that score highly in both our ease of movement and motion isolation categories are hard to come by, as these two characteristics are tricky to balance. This model uses memory foam and pocketed coils to its advantage, allowing it to successfully offer both motion isolation and easy movement.

Off-Gassing

7/10

Casper uses CertiPUR-US-certified foams that have low volatile organic compound (VOC) levels in the Snow Mattress. However, when you set up this model, you may notice a smell as it expands to its full size. The scent is strongest when you first unwrap the mattress and dissipates with time. We recommend unwrapping your mattress in a room with plenty of airflow and waiting at least 24 hours before use.

Casper Snow Mattress Review Breakdown

The Casper Snow Mattress is a hybrid model that scores a 5 out of 10 on our firmness scale, giving it a medium feel. It has three total layers and a number of additional features that target cooling and support. It’s available in five sizes that each have a 12-inch profile.

This model starts with Casper’s CoolTouch cover with yarn that’s meant to draw heat away from the body. Next, there’s a layer of Casper’s Signature Foam with AirScape Technology. It’s perforated to enhance airflow and includes phase change material intended to keep you cool. This proprietary foam contours but is also engineered to feel responsive.

The middle layer consists of memory foam that has three different zones. The center third provides increased support in order to keep your midsection and lower back properly aligned, while the top and bottom sections are a bit softer to prevent pressure buildup. Like the polyfoam layer above, it’s also perforated to prevent heat retention. Patented Heat Delete bands within the memory foam aim to pull heat away from the body.

The support core is made from pocketed coils that are individually wrapped to increase motion isolation while providing support. They’re surrounded by foam rails that are intended to increase edge support.
