I do not often see snipe on a jointer. Is this the front or exit end of the board? All boards, or just this one? How long is the board?

Either your blades are set too high, outfeed table too low, or your infeed and outfeed tables aren't parallel.

If possible also stand on the outfeed side of the planer. As the board nears the end, lift slightly on the end of the board. This will keep it from dropping down and creating the snipe.
