At the deserted pass there was no snow, and looking at the summit above it was the same. I rode down the north side a bit and noted the Carnic alps have some snow, but sparse. This could all change in a week or two though so there's still hope.
The ride back down and home was fun. I may try this as a loop coming back over Selle Chianzutan. Never did that in winter before.
