My friend and I plan to walk 3 weeks beginning the 19th of May. We initially were thinkingof beginning in Lausanne, but that gets us to the St. Bernard on May 26, and we're worried that the snow might still be there and cause us trouble. If we would start on the other side of the pass, like in Aosta, will we still have mountin views? That way we'd likely finish in Pontremoli. Thoughts???
