All roads to Big Lake should be open in May. Currently, Hwy 273 is closed for the winter. It would normally open around April 15 in an average snowpack year, but this is way below average and would expect it to open much earlier than that. The route you take from Phoenix to Pinetop shouldn't matter much any time of year except which part of the Valley you are coming from.

There are roads from the south to Big Lake that are currently "not closed", coming from Alpine, but these roads may have snowdrifts that block access by vehicle. These are typically accessible a bit earlier than Hwy 273.
