Mont Blanc Climbing Notes

U of M Climbers from UNITED STATES writes:

Watching the weather. Is the mountain still in climbable condition? Can anyone tell me about the snow pack tendencies? Where I'm from after a big snow, the mountain usually needs 24-36 hours of sun for the snow to consolidate and maker good climbing? Looks like snow September 15-17 and then hot clear conditions for follow. Any advice about the local area would be greatly appreciated.
