I think this might, just might, be a troll!
In my opinion I would go for it, all depending if its dry, certainly go for Tryfan as itís a good one for novices and with sensible leadership you should have a good day. Although the weather isnít ideal and you wont get the full enjoyment. Secondly see how the group has coped once Tryfan has been completed then you can assess if the group has enough time and energy to tackle BR. Finally check MWIS for the weather before you set off and if you feel uncomfortable with conditions have a plan B.
The only snow/Ice I saw was a few patches under the ridge on the Carnedds.
