I've spent 3 months in the area in those months over the past 2 years. It's not much but here's my take: I had traces of snow on many days and passes but nothing to worry about. More to be looked forward to for the beauty of it. Last year snow fell in Murren in early October. When I got there in mid month I don't recall there being a trace of it. It was apparently very unseasonable. So it's hit and miss and there are alternative trails and ways to get around if your trail of choice looks dicey. (ice cleats might get you past bad spots on otherwise clear trails) My thoughts would go to where you mean to stay. Lots of places close down around the end of Sept. Murren was half closed. Lobhornhutte will be open to mid Oct I think but Faulhorn and others probably won't be. So choices may be limited but what is open you won't have trouble booking and prices should be down some. It's quiet time between the summer and winter seasons. Some tourist draws close. Trummelbach Falls for one.
