I think that I will save a copy of your post to use every year for myself. I face the same difficult decisions....which you have expressed very clearly and very well....every Spring when I plan my trips.
Usually, I have taken the cowards way out...if I go in May, I don't go up in the Alps. I spend my time at lower altitudes.
In fact, if you get any useful answers to your questions about a prediction, I'll read them eagerly, because I'm planning to be there at the beginning of June. That is the really "iffy" time because the seasons are just changing.
Sorry, I don't know how to get the projections for the snow situation then, and they would not be reliable at this time of year, anyway. I was just starting to check with my Swiss friends about snow pack. Earlier in the season they were complaining that the alpine resorts were not getting any snow......don't know the current status.
By the way, the cograil between Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald runs all year, and a sunny day at the higher stations can give some very nice views at any time of year.
Finally, I really prefer Wengen, in general.
So does Kim-
Just as an an example of the seasonality, here is the opening schedule of the Hotel Schönegg in Wengen. It is one of the nicer hotels there. Others do not have such a limited schedule.
