If there was a large snowy mountain in a Tropical rainforest, how much will be the average yearly snowfall near the summit, 3000 cm or less than that?

It probably wouldn’t be so wet at a high elevation in tropics. Highest snowfall mountains are found in Patagonia, coastal Alaska and New Zealand. PNW peaks such as Rainer are impressive too.
There’s a 16,000 ft peak in Indonesia and the precipitation there isn’t so much, I don’t believe.
In Hawaii along the windward coasts the highest rainfall areas are about 2500-3500 ft.
Above that rainfall drops off.

Are you asking about the biggest snowfall in the tropics, or just anywhere in the world?
Apparently, Mt Baker ski area is home to the world's greatest recorded snowfall in one season, 1,140 inches (95.0 ft; 29.0 m), recorded during the 1998–99 season. It enjoys the unofficially highest average annual snowfall of any resort in the world, with 641 inches (53.4 ft; 16.3 m).

Guys he is making a fictional highland tropical climate and he wants it to be high enough to have snowfall and he just wants to know how much snow would fall. He posted about it earlier.

Said peak is fairly inland, in the middle of Papua.

Cayambe, a city in Equador at the foot of Cayambe volcano, gets 0.873m of precipitation a year, peaking in April. The mountain is permanently snow-capped; one of the few such on the equator. On the far side of the range is the Amazon rain forest.

Kilimanjaro might have the data you are seeking. Close to the equator and one of the climatic zones encircling the extinct volcano is classified as a rainforest, (between elevation 1,800m and 2,800m - peak is just shy of 5,900m).
