Good way of getting an idea of snow levels is to use one of the many webcams around in the Alps.
This one http://www.zugspitze.de/livecams/cam4.htm
will only be visible in the USA when daylight returns in about 11 hours from now!
It is on the Wank mountain at about 1750m, (5700 feet) and looks towards the South West over the Alpspitze, (2628m), and Germany's highest the Zugspitze at 2962m, (just under 10,000 feet). It has been a sorry sight looking at it so far this winter!
But snow is forecast this weekend as Thomas mentioned on a different thread.
