Not the same. Sugar peas are thicker. Snow peas are basically flat. I've used sugar snap peas in asian dishes though. Just need to cook a few minutes longer or cook a minute or two in the microwave for a minute first.

Agree with Lynnttt above. Snow peas are 3-4 inches in length and pretty much flat, with 1/8" bumps that are the peas themselves inside. The taste and texture comes from the pod, as opposed the pea. Mind, you'd have to be getting a bit fussy on choosing between the two.
