If you cannot see the surface under the snow, you may find your self sliding when you want to be walking.
If you slide in the wrong direction, you might have a long journey.
If you have good boots with lugged soles, preferably Vibram soles, hiking staffs, and experience on slippery mountain trails, please disregard my very conservative comments. As I get older, I get more cautious.
There are indeed some stunning trails at lower altitudes. The key at that time of year is just how far down the snow line has descended below 2200 meters, or below 2000 meters. At altitudes above where you are considering, it can still be snowing into late June.
