Hi. Does anyone have any input on two things: 1. Will the access to the trail head be open on that date? 2. Will the switchbacks be accessible and relatively snow free?

Thanks

Unless something very unexpected happens, the answer is "yes" to both. This year's snowpack is below average and seems to roughly match that of 2018, so I'm expecting the switchbacks to be open by mid June:

The trail head will open in June as well, but it's unknown whether it will be June 1, 7, 15, or June 30:
