Climbing Fuji-san in May?

Weather permitting, I'm considering climbing Fuji-san in mid-May. I know that's outside the normal climbing season (July to mid-Sept), but it's not dead of winter either.

I found this link which has helpful info:

Snowshoeing the Tioga Road

I hear a lot about people skiing up Lee Vining Canyon or from Snow Creek up to Tuolumne Meadows, and I'm wondering if it's possible to do this as a snowshoeing destination. I have no ski experience, nor any particular inclination to learn, but I enjoy substantial snowshoeing in Tahoe and along Glacier Point Road.

Huayhuash Question: San Antonio Pass vs Trapecio Pass?

Hey, just wondering if anyone has ever been over both of these passes? I know Trapecio makes things quicker and is fairly straightforward, but are the views better than San Antonio? We could take Trapecio and then the next day just hike up to San Antonio to check out the view and come back down, but if the view is clearly better from San Antonio we might just not both with Trapecio at all, especially ...
