Though they once had a technologically advanced society, they lost their technological knowledge over several millennia. They eventually became a primitive people, with limited intelligence and a fear of strangers. They continued to use simple technology such as blasters, enviro-suits stun nets and powersliders, but they could not operate the more advanced technology of the cities built by the ancient Snogars. They came to call the offworlders who could "smart ones".
By the time of the Galactic Civil War, this led to a crisis in their society, as they were unable to repair the heating machines their ancestors built to keep their homeworld—that was going through an ice age—habitable for them. The only warm places of the cities, buried in the ice, were avoided by all Snogars, considered to be the "evil places of the ancient smart ones". Some Snogars kidnapped Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett in an attempt to force them to fix these machines some time before the Battle of Hoth.
