Snow anywhere near Innsbruck in May?

I am planning to visit Innsbruck in early May 2017.

One of the activity I want to do is enjoy snow (not skiing, but to play in snow with my kid).

Since Titlis is very crowded, I am looking for alternate place. Will Ischgl have some snow on mountain and is it worth visiting in May?

If not, can you suggest some other place similar to Titlis which is nearby Innsbruck? Thanks.

you are extremely unlikely to find snow in anywhere you can stay. however, if you are in innsbruck area you can take a trip up to the stubai glacier. alternatively you could stay in mayrhofen and take a trip to the hintertux glacier, or in kaprun / zell am see and visit the kitsteinhorn

The winter season at the Pitztal glacier also lasts until early May.

Stubai Glacier would be a fun day trip, just check in advance whether there are maintence works done on ropeways. There are direct buses from the center of Innsbruck to the valley staton at Mutterbergalm.

Yes try the Hintertux , if you do not stay in the valley and want to stay in Innsbruck it would take about two and a half hours to three hours to get there
