Bear with me on the obviousness of this question to some people:
Can I join iCloud with my iPhone4S but continue to Sync manually to Snow Leopard on my Macbook Pro ( bought in 2010)?
I have no reason to update to Lion ( or am I wrong?)
Yes, you can sync manually with the computer but you will not be able to use any of the iCloud features on the computer until updating it to Lion.
