Lost my camera in the snow; is it worth trying to find it in the Spring?

I dropped our point-and-shoot today while sledding with the kids. I figure the camera is a write-off, but I may be able to find it when the snow melts. Will the SD card still be good?

It's a Canon SD940is, for what that's worth. Dropped into around 6"+ of Minnesota snow. Unless someone finds it or there's some seriously weird climate tut, it will probably remain under snow and wet until at least early March, and subjected to lots of subzero freeze-thaw cycles. I'd like the photos, obviously. I just don't know if it's worth being vigilant about.
