I was there last year in June, where it was closed due to rock slides. I could ride to the top, but the gate was closed. Lots of snow though, but had it been open, I would assume they had cleared the last bit too.

I believe they officially say it opens on June 1st, but I would guess it depends on the amount of snow. No matter what, I'd give it a try. If it's closed it would be so at the top, where you just can't enter the tunnel. It's a great road even if you have to go back the same way you came. I took the north side.

Consider the Transalpina as well. They don't close it, but snow can be an issue at those altitudes. I'm going there late may too.
