Weather in Bavarian Alps 2nd week of April

Hey there.....need to get some "on the ground" info as to what to expect weather wise in the Bavarian Alps 2nd week of April. We are from Colorado, so we have lots of experience with ever changing weather, wearing layers, and altitude. That being said, we aren't looking for a snow vacation. ;) (we'll have had enough of that)

Wondering if we would expect to encounter a lot of snow? We would definitely still have some here in our mountains, but they are higher in elevation. So, trying to get some perspective.

Several of the places we wanted to visit aren't open that's made me curious. May have to save this portion of the trip for another time. TIA!

Conditions will vary by altitude, probably like Colorado. On the lower slopes, expect anything from wet snow to mixes of wet snow and mud to just mud. The upper slopes, particularly places like the Zugspitze arena, the snow pack will still be plenty deep.

Not a good time for hiking, if that's what you're looking for.
