you can see some images of Zugspitze / Höllental and some images of Jubiläumsgrat on my new "Alpspitze main ski routes" SP page, to get a first impression of the Jubiläumsgrat conditions of April, 10.
Höllental is covered in much avalanche snow so if you want to go end may check the web pages if the Höllentalklamm is open.
All the northern exposed rockwalls are still packed with snow and above 1600 m there are no avalanche activities in those rockfaces yet. So I think this will start only in may. So actually the upper parts of Höllental ascent to Zugspitze is no go zone until mid may.
On Jubiläumsgrat there were no tracks visible. Conditions on the aretes are actually very variable. Snowfree zones are alternating with corniches and several meters of snow. The snow on the south, west and east sides actually is very deep. The traverse Vollkarspitze - Grieskarscharte, the last part of Jubiläumsgrat, actually looks dangerous (avalanche danger).
I think Jubiläumsgrat is passable for good mountaineers end of may. There might be some extra snow obstacles left by then because of the extraordinaty snow amount of this winter. If the Höllental ascent can be made end of may can actually not be predicted. You should check the situation end of may.
