Climbed Shavano and Tab yesterday (5/20) via the standard route, Blank Cabin TH. The Angel of Shav still holds some snow but its disappearing fast, get there quick before there's to little snow to make it worthwhile. We went all the way to Tab without need of any snow gear. The only place where snow was an issue was on the ridge leading up to Tab. The whole ridgetop is still covered and fairly scary due to a cornice or two so we kept south/below the ridge and summitted without any problems.
