How about in early June, specifically the first week?
I'm trying to decide how many days to base in Aosta, based on what is available. I'm also more interested in riding cable cars than hiking, though if the weather is nice, it could be great to ride up and then hike down.
So far I've read about the one that goes up to the Plateau Rosa, where you can see the Matterhorn and just heard about the funivia towards Monte Bianco.
Are there any good online hiking maps, at least to get a rough idea? I've emailed the tourist offices in Cervinia and Courmayeur but I didn't find any info on the lovevda.it site.
I read that the there is a cable car from Aosta to Pila but that it doesn't start running until the end of June. But it sounds like it's worth driving there for the views.
