The last time we were in Colorado was in July (several years ago), and there was still snow in Rocky Mountain National Park (and some entrances were closed), and there are some years when there’s still skiing in Arapaho Basin (A-Basin) in June. http://www.arapahoebasin.com/ABasin/Default.aspx We skied there in June before in shorts and tank tops, so depending on the snowfalls, it may still be open.

There’s almost always snow on Mt.Sopris (best seen from Glenwood Springs and Carbondale on the way to Aspen), but that’s a bit of a drive from Denver.

Beartooth mountains in NW Wyoming. There was snow on a day when it was 90 degrees at 5000 ft elevation and a nice 65 degrees at the top of the mountain. You can get out of your car and play in it too.

Personal photo from late July last year (it was a hotter than normal summer and there was more snow higher up and behind me).

ETA: Another picture
