about 70-75% of average (so somewhat low). Within the Park snow depths seem to range from
40 to 50 inches at the higher elevations. But I agree with John that unless there's some major
additional snow in the next 2-4 weeks you will likely have no problems anywhere in the Park by
the time of your visit.

I would say that the recent storm dumped about 2" on the lower valleys of the park, at least on the east side, but much of this is melting fast. There are lots of places where the grass is becoming exposed. I was out in Horseshoe Park today and the snow layer in the valley was maybe 34" in the drifts. On the west side (where I live), the valleys are melting out, but in some areas, you might see 12" still.
That said, most of this snow in the lower reaches of the park will be gone in a month or so. You should always bring extra layers to the mountains, but you probably won't need winter gear in June. :)
