What could be causing this?

Probably either or both of the following reasons. One, is too much fertilizer, mainly nitrogen and the second reason is that the daytime temperatures are too high, above about 75F. What are your fertilizing with?

No fertilizer. My mom added some fresh bagged soil in the spring. She grew peas in the same bed in the spring and they had blossoms at knee-high. Is it possible that high nitrogen would lead to ZERO flowers?

Yes, too much nitrogen will severely limit the growth of blooms on legumes. However, in your case since there was no NPK fertilizer used it has to be that the temperature has been too high. Snap peas are a cool weather crop. SS can withstand a light freeze. A light freeze can knock off the blooms but there is still a chance you can get a few peas. Peas are mainly a spring crop

Yes, on the nitrogen...but growing the same veggie, even peas, in the identical location year after year is just asking for trouble.

Not just pests and diseases, but soil nutrients removed by the plants.
