This alter-ego is introduced during a storyline in which Charlie Brown and Linus van Pelt go on a school skiing trip to Lofty Mountain. Wearing a ski toque and goggles, and carrying a set of skis, Snoopy joins them.
Snoopy initially asks to be directed to the rabbit slope. He also has difficulty finding ski boots as his entire body fits in one boot. When Linus mentions that the ski instructor has spoken to all of the skiers except for Snoopy, Snoopy guesses that the instructor might think that he is an Olympic team member.
