Wind River Snow Levels

What are the snow levels looking like this year? I'm planning a trip to climb Gannett Peak and the end of May might be the only chance I have to go.

A friend of mine in Wyoming reported the following to me last week:

"The Northern Winds have below normal snow this year and the wind has been light keeping snow on the western side of the divide instead of blowing it over onto the glaciers as much as usual."

He thought that conditions would be favorable for our plans to climb Gannett in mid-July.
