Almost every year there are snow patches to be found into July and/or August. In even the driest winter coupled with a very warm spring, we will have patches of snow into June. Snow patches remain the very longest near the Summit along the Cornice Run on the Front Side and along Zuma Cornice on the Backside. 1995, 1996 and 1997 were all great snow years. Significant patches of snow along the Cornice Run never fully melted during those years.
