Is this too noisy?

You mean “too busy,” as in “too much going on,” i.e., too many details? No, not for me.

How's the color feel? Something just feels off to me somehow.

I wasn’t there, so don’t know if the red is oversaturated or not, but I do not find it objectionable as-is. Oversaturated red tends to loose detail in petals or leaves, for instance, but I do not see it here either. You could, however, check it at 100%.

Reds look luminescent and those flowers may well look oversaturated or unnatural but I like the shot as it is. In the Alps, under the right light some flowers also like Velvia/Photoshop "creatures"!
Well done!

If you are using PS, then try this trick to colour balance your shot.

Duplicate the image layer, then on the new layer see what PS suggests is the correct colour balance for the whole of the scene, based on the lightest and darkest pixels that PS can find within it, using Ctrl+Shift+B. Now turn the 'corrected' layer blend mode to 'Colour' and click the eye on and off on the newly colour balanced layer, to see if PS got it right for you  ;)

Oh and if you want the layer to be both colour corrected and contrast corrected at the same time, then just leave the blend mode at 'Normal'. Or if you only want the contrast correction from the colour balanced layer, then turn the blend mode to 'Luminosity'.

..and if it didn't worked at all, then delete the layer and start looking for a plan 'B'.

There seems to be a slight magenta cast in the snow and clouds. It might be because of the time of day (early morning?) or Daylight white balance, which adds +10 magenta, at least in Lightroom. I often check what would Flesh white balance look like, as it is the same temperature as daylight, but no magenta tint.
