Bushwack up the Pt 13630 SE ridge directly from Angel of Shavano CT trailhead. Minimal snow - dry to 6" crust. Turned around at 13,400 due to some strong winds; had to drop and cling to rocks a few times. Descended Pt 13630 E ridge, which had slightly more snow (4" to 18") - which was like potato soup late in the day.

From what I can tell, it looks like a ski descent from Shavano is in. Sawatch has been getting some snow recently. There appeared to be continuous snow from the summit down to the angel. At that point you will be in blowdown hell, but that‘s just part of the game.

Bean - as of 4/14 Tab is in for a ski as well. We went over and had continuous snow to the summit. Heavy winds but we figured what the heck...
