Best time for Gannett this year

I'm looking for advice on the best time to climb Gannett this summer. With the low snow year I've been thinking late June? Optimally, I'd like the snow bridge over the bergschrund to still be there and the snow to be soft (not ice). But I don't want to end up getting there too early, making snowshoes or skis necessary.

Any comments welcome, thanks
