No, it is the beginning of summer so not usually. The mountains have snow, but there is non at the village.

Enderton, there is no road or track up the mountain.

If a keen and experienced alpine mountain climber and you join a guided climb it will take you 6 days to climb Aoraki/Mt Cook http://www.summits.co.nz/guided_ascents.html

or you can take a helicopter or ski-plane for a snow landing with far lower effort and at far lower cost mtcookskiplanes.com/flights/Aoraki-Mt-Cook-F…
