Alpine regions are micro-climate. So prepare yourself with good clothing and sleeping bags, even during summer time.
Once on the track, pitch your bivy where the grass is green. If possible, find a hiding place in case of sudden thunderstorms.
There is plenty of food in Chamonix and Trient, Champex and Courmayeur. So fill up your tanks. On the way you can find drinking water but little food supplies.
