You kind of answered most of your own questions there and all your information is correct.
If it does regularly snow then the problem of a large temperature gradient promoting depth hoar is not such a concern. You could however argue that the ground will be warmer than it would have been in 2 months time thus promoting a large temperature gradient.
You might be correct in saying the higher slopes will have no problem, but there might be a depth hoar layer that forms in relation to altitude like a big ring around the mountain.
All of this is purely speculation though, the best thing you can do is start keeping a record of the snowpack if possible so you dont blindly walk into harms way.
It will be a very interesting season in regards to snowpack for you guys thats for sure.
