Difference between Netscaler SNIP and a VIP?

Just trying to understand the difference between these two.  I understand exactly what a VIP is, but my confusion is over how / why SNIPs come in to play, as they seem to have the same concept.  Is it just a matter of the VIP is client accessible and the SNIP is Netscaler accessible?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the responses thus far.  So the SNIP is essentially a pass-thru address for a particular subnet that contains one or more servers that are in the NS in question?
yes it is the NS source IP address assigned sending to the server in that subnet
