mid-May weather and conditions in Alpine crossing from Italy to France

We are considering spending some time hiking the La Palud to Chamonix area, town of Aosta, cable car to Aigulle du Midi, etc., but are concerned that in mid-May the area may still be too winter-like to enjoy. We would appreciate any information as to the weather, if trails are still snow covered, etc. in this area.
thanks- Mike

I don't know that specific area, but in general, anything at 2,000 m elevation or above (give or take a few dozen meters) may still have a significant amount of snow. Some portions of the trails may not yet be passable.
