Looking at the webcams there is no snow at all on the diving board and I doubt there is much if any at LYV.

Did it last year on April 27th when there was a bit more snow...and we only got snow on the JMT up near the top of Nevada Falls (that shady overhang spot) and some patches of old snow in the forest in the Lost Lake area. You should have no problems this year.

trail on summit will take you around liberty cap instead of up and over Nevada Falls, that gully may have snow

Shouldn't be anything. If you seach this forum for diving board you'll find other info.
Actually, I'm pretty sure there is nothing... you can can any route you like.
