My wife and and I would like to hike the Haute Route (or some similar high altitude extended hike), and our most convenient time would be late June and early July. Does anyone have input on trail conditions then? We are not afraid of a little occasional snow in the passes, but worry about extended periods of slogging through snow in cold conditions. Also are the high altitude huts open this time of the year? Thanks for any first-hand info on hiking in the high alps that time of year.
