Primary Specialty: Arctic Ski Patrol

Motto: "Never bet against me."
Snow Job was the first arctic soldier to join the G.I. Joe Team. His talents were needed when the battle against COBRA took to the cold climate and snow covered mountains. He doesn't particularly enjoy the cold, but thrives on what he can do in it. He's an expert marksman, qualified on all NATO long range rifles and laser targeting systems. Snow Job was a major contender for the Olympic Biathlon before his enlistment. He can still ski down steep mountains and pick off a target 1,000 yards away, making it back to base before the end of a poker game. His reputation precedes him, not only as a skilled target shooter, but as a major con artist. Snow Job's scams are legendary within the barracks, and no one will dare take a bet from him. His teammates steer clear of him around pay day. When the G.I. Joe program re-organized, Snow Job returned as a member of the Arctic unit. He won more card games than anyone cares to remember, and he never misses a shot. You can bet on him to be the winner.
From General Hawk's Files: "He is a highly qualified individual. A definite choice pick for the team. His talents with a rifle are as legendary as are his all night card games. Snow Job is one of the arctic experts that really doesn't like the cold. Very strange, since he performs best in that environment. If we miss him, we figure he is in one of two places - out target shooting, or out spending the pay he won off the last poker game he played. Trust him on the battlefield, but never take him up on any sure bets..."
No variations of Snow Job (v2) are known to exist.
Snow Job (version 2) was created using the head, chest, waist, and leg molds from the original Snow Job (1983). The lower arms are also from Snow Job (1983), but the upper arms were shared with the swivel-arm versions of Clutch (1982) and Breaker (1982).
This entire mold was later used to create Whiteout (2000).
Note that the figure's head only turns left and right - it does not allow the head to look up and down.
