Hey,

Thinking of heading to the alps early May to make use of the first may bank holiday. Does anyone know of any peaks which are in condition at that time ? So over 3000 meters, and for a group which have about 8 weeks alpine experience...

Cheers

Luke

In reply to luke1986: might be useful to pack skiing equipment at least for descent ... if so, lots of easy 3000m peak in ötztal alps for example, ridges and short / easy ice, cable cars reducing walk-in for many summits ... huts may be closed in this season but usually have a separate room open for winter climbers.

In reply to luke1986: As replied to another thread on Alps in May: huts generally open till mid-May for ski touring, then closed till mid-June. Lots of snow this year, down to 1200-1400m at the moment, so walking may be difficult without snow-shoes or skis.
