I climbed Shavano on Friday May 24th. Snowshoes were not needed. After the standard route crosses the angel it is snow covered. A steep slog uphill is in order to gain the ridge. We glissaded the angel to descend. If you start early and are not confident crossing snow slopes traction devices would be recommended.

Ski descent from the summit?

Did you think there would be continuous skiable snow from the summit into the angel?

I don't think a ski would be in order until the top of the angel (right arm is the highest). The summit had snow but I don't think it is skiable. Also there is a large gap in snow coverage between the top of the angel and the ridge below the summit.
