Alta Via 2 in Dolomites, Italy

Hi all!

5 friends and myself are planning a trek through the Dolomites this July. We would like to do the Alta Via 2, because it's more remote and less crowded than the classic Alta Via 1. We have no Via Ferrata experience though, but are used to trekking.

The route is mostly done in 10 days, but we only have 8 days for trekking. That means we can only do a part of it. ...

5 of us are hiking the Haute Route in exactly 2 weeks time. We're arriving in Chamonix on 7 July, and are looking to complete the route 7 days later on 14 July.

Via Alpina

We are hiking the Via Alpina. Just trekked from Wengen to Meiringen. We intend to go from Meuringen to Engleberg, but have heard that snow levels might still be too deep at Joch Pass. Does anyone know whether the trail is passable from Planplatten to Engstlenalp and from Joch Pass to Truebsee? Same inquiry for the Surenenpass from Engleberg to Altdorf? Thanks. 16 June 2015
