Snow at 1300m end of May!!

We had snow in Vallorcine at 1310m this week and the snowploughs were out!
Conditions in the mountains have been poor for most of this week although a lot of the lower snow quickly melted when the sun came out. But more snow if forecast above 2000m so trekking and climbing above this altitude is not recommended right now.
If it's lower walks you're after then the flowers re well ahead of normal and valley walks are superb.
