Topic - Tour du Mont Blanc Snow Conditions June 2013

Oceanic - on 03 Jun 2013
I'm planning on starting the TMB on 16th June.

There's a lot of snow at the moment...

How icey is it? I'm particularly concerned about the Aiguilles Rouge in this respect. I'm guessing that axe and crampons may be necessary?

Avalanche risk? I'm considering changing the route in places and taking transceivers and shovels, is this over kill?

How soft is the snow? Will I be postholing through snow drifts or moving easily over neve?

Obviously a lot can change in a week and a half, but any conditions reports would be a welcome.
