El Calafate - August

Has anyone been to El Calafate at the beginning of August. (I don't have a choice on that time) I know it will be very cold, but would like to know if the bus still runs out to the Merino glacier. Do the walkways remain open. Does the boat trip to the front of the glacier operate. Appreciate some help. I have sent off heaps of emails, but cannot get a reply.

In winter in El Calafate (July/August) the normal excursions keep on operating like the excursion to Perito Moreno, Balcon del Calafate or Cerro Frías. But is is out of season and can be very cold. Also because of bad weather conditions excursions can be cancelled. Best period to visit the region is October till April.
