That is not true. It can snow there, but it is nominal and usually melts off quickly. I was there in Dec '09 and in talking to people who live upcountry on the slopes of the volcano it snowed very lightly the prior winter -- around February of '09.

Does it ever snow in Hawaii?
Although Hawaii is located in the tropics, it contains high mountains which receive snowfall every winter. On the Big Island of Hawaii, Mauna Kea (13,796' / 4205m) and Mauna Loa (13,660' / 4163m) get at least some snow every year, usually between October and March, although snow can fall any time from August to May. On the island of Maui, Haleakala (10,023' / 3055m) occasionally gets a little bit of snow. Of these three, both Mauna Kea and Haleakala have a road to the top. When there's a big snowfall, residents of the Big Island drive to the top in pickup trucks, where they ski, snowboard, and build snowmen, then fill the beds of the pickup trucks with snow and drive back down to sea level to continue their snow play in the heat.
