A group of mine is hoping to do the south part of the GR20, starting at Vizzavona and ending at Conca, during the first week of May. We won't be doing the northern part. Was hoping to figure out if there is likely to still be snow on parts of the southern trail by then, and how difficult it may be to traverse parts of the trail. Does anyone have an idea about how much snow there currently is, and in which parts? Has this year gotten a good amount of snow? Any information, or sites to look at, would be very helpful. We are planning to bring crampons and warm clothes. Thank you!

I'll be attempting a solo S -> N hike beginning early May, perhaps see you on the trail.

Hello,
I find that if you go for Randoblog PNRC ....click translation into English....latest shows tree cutting of fallen trees on the trail 18th and 19th April and earlier on the 8th images of the snow-cover, in the South, at that time.
