The "Snowmass Points and Slopes" (SPS) are a set of benchmark points and parameter lines in the MSSM parameter space corresponding to different scenarios in the search for Supersymmetry at present and future experiments. This set of benchmarks was agreed upon at the 2001 "Snowmass Workshop on the Future of Particle Physics" as a consensus based on different existing proposals.
