We are now into our third week on the Tour du Mont Blanc and after continued warm conditions and some rain things are looking more like summer!
Although there are still patches of snow on some north facing slopes & shaded gullies our groups are now generally trekking without microspikes but it is still advisable to have these with you if you are intending to trek via the Col du Brevent, Col des Fours & the Fenetra d'Arpette. Care still needs to be taken when crossing snow patches.
All routes are now passable with care & the flowers are fabulous!
