How's the Weather? in Italian Alps

The SpringMarch to May
The cycling season can sometimes begin very late May but the weather can often mean the passes are closed if Spring has been col.
The SummerJune to August
The summer is the best time to ride the Stelvio and Mortirolo. The weather in the Alps is of course changeable so you should be equipped for warm and cold weather riding.
The AutumnSeptember to November
You can still ride the passes usually in early autumn but any later and inclement weather is likely to close the passes.
The WinterDecember to February
The winter is the playground of the skier rather than the cyclist!
