One of Casper’s more expensive models
Founded in 2014, Casper is a well-known company within the world of online mattress retailers, and it has expanded over time to include an array of sleep products on its site, in stores, and through third-party online retailers.
The brand offers a varied range of mattresses within its product line including the newly added Casper Snow Mattress, which is a hybrid model with a medium (5) firmness level that aims to keep sleepers cool. We’ll explain how well it achieves its goal, and dive into how it performed during our sleep lab trials.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Mattress Prices and Sizing
The Casper Snow Mattress falls squarely in the average price range for a hybrid mattress, which tend to be more expensive than other mattress types. It’s a luxury model that includes multiple patented features and high-quality materials. It scored highly in nearly all our testing categories and proved itself to be quite durable and likely to last.
You can purchase this mattress in five sizes that include twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king. It’s not available in a regular twin size or other unique dimensions. All models have a 12-inch profile that should be compatible with most standard-depth sheet sets.
