Semi-distributed glacio-hydrologic model to simulate daily discharge from catchments with glacier cover (without routing, snow melt based on degree-day approach), including test files. Model calibration is discussed in the reference paper, a simple example of the underlying Monte Carlo simulation procedure is provided.

More information: (the above paper)

Note: the Matlab model contains the option to have fuzzy transition range between snow and rain, not discussed in the above paper.
