Snow Leopard does not sell a downloadable version. OS X 10.7 Lion will be sold via download from the Mac App Store, but that OS is not released until July.

...although the Mac App Store requires Snow Leopard, so you're going to need at least one more physical system disk. – Scott Jun 23 '11 at 8:52
