Hiking to Snow in July

I'm not sure if anyone looks at this board but.....I have 4 kids (ages 5-10). We want to hike to some snow. Are there any easy trail that would get us to some snow in early July? Thank you for any suggestions.

I would drive up to the top of Trail Ridge Road to the Alpine Visitor Center in Rocky Mtn NP. There most likely will be some snow there to see and/or play in. www.nps.gov/romo/photosmultimedia/webcams.htm

As noted, Trail Ridge Road is a good possibility. Another would be Loveland Pass, which is a bit west of Winter Park on US6 off I-70 at the tunnels. I was just through the area last week and have to say, not much at all for snow. This was a pretty low snow year and temps have been super warm. So it might be a bit challenging this year in July.

Good luck.
