Carl - mid June through July is best. Europe goes on vacation in August, so there is fierce competition for resources, and before mid June, a lot of hotels and such are closed due to taking a winter break.
Earlier than June is a real crapshoot and anything later than mid-September is too. Especially on the higher passes.
