Really nice piece of nature. Wonderful landscapes and stable weather for hiking up to the saddles as late as early winter. Plenty of hiking trails, besides the most popular GRs, in almost every valley. Trail marking is visible and with suitable maps, there shouldn't be any problems with orientation, especially above the tee line. Most of the mountain cabins (refuges) can be used as overnight shelter during winter, as well.
Wow, what a beautiful spot to go hike, camp and visit the small mountain villages. I've loved every minute here.
