What is the latest (or I guess the earliest) it's ever snowed on the summit??

Do you ever get a freak snowstorm in the summer time??

Every month of the year has seen at least 1 inch of snow. More info here. (http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/normals.php)

I'm skeptical about July though, that may have been hail, which is a totally different process than snow or sleet.

Generally the last snows come in May and the first snow comes in October. Snow in June and September is rare, but you can expect it every few years.

Checkout May 1997, 96" of snow - and October 2005 with 79".
