I'd say overall average or slightly below average winter snowpack. Recent dump deposited 10-20 cm but it started melting. Typical early spring conditions.

As for Glacier Lake your guess is probably good. I'd expect trail to be dry with section of mud and snow patches on that forested hill before you start descent to the lake. Gaiters only gear needed
