I'm guessing that the Oak campground on the SE side (road out of Leeds) is probably navigable. That trail is south-facing, and I don't recall seeing anything that looked like an avalanche chute right there. The trick comes when you drop down to Deer Flat and Further Water; that area often has snow up through June.
The top plateau of the mountain is wooded; the highpoint has a viewpoint about 100 feet to the south, and is hard to discern unless you have the waypoint on a GPS. The range has lots of lumpy summits that are like rolling, wooded hills perched on a cliff.
If someone has already traveled the Pine Valley trails (I'm guessing you want the "Summit Trail"), they may be packed. Otherwise those trails will be hard to find in the snow.
