Ok, I can't tell when the "earliest", or the "latest" was. I've found references to snow falling on June 30. And I've found references to snow falling on July 8th.

Denver:

Earliest First Snow - September 3, 1961

Latest First Snow - November 21, 1934

Earliest Last Snow - March 4, 1887

Latest Last Snow - June 12, 1947

You just can't count on anything "normal" in any year.

Yes, that is very late for Chicago. We can get snowfall in October, but not much. Around Thanksgiving is when we get our first good snowfall. To not have any measurable snow until mid-January is pretty unique.

Ok, do you mean that a certain season you didn't get snow until Jan. 17th? I think by what they mean by the latest snowfall is the last time it fell for the season like in April or May, etc.

I'll go from memory.

Nasty blizzard on October 31 about 10 or so years ago. ( I thought the snow would melt in a week or so. It didn't and those huge piles were there til April)

Latest was on fishing opener (mid may) in 1968. Wearing a snowmobile suit in a boat and snow coming down.

Rapid City:

I've seen it snow as late as Memorial Day and begin as early as Labor Day. I remember it snowed at Terry Peak on July 4th a few years ago. This year we didn't get the first snow until Thanksgiving so it was really nice.

Seems like it used to snow a lot more. When I was little we had so many snow days that we were in school until mid-June!
