Current Trail Conditions and Refugio Status - May 13?


Posted: Mon, May 13, 2013, 19:56

I am starting to trek the GR20 on Sunday (May 19) from the south (Conca) with my daughter. Expect to finish up north on June 1 or 2. What are the trail conditions like now, and what can we expect over the next 2 weeks? Is all the snow gone, even at the higher elevations and shaded segments of the trail up north (can I leave crampons at home?). Are the refugios open and serving cooked food, or will they be come May 19 (or shortly thereafter)? If not, can we still expect gas and cooking utensils to use in the refugios? Thanks.

read the thread with a title saying sth like "arriving to corsica with no real plan" - there is some up to date info there, and some links. Also, check Parc Corse's web page and Meteo France montagne hauteur de neige pages.
