Mt. Shavano (14,229') is the southernmost 14er in the Sawatch Range. It's east bowl sports a very prominent three-fingered snowfield - the Angel of Shavano. The "Angel of Shavano" is a snow feature that sort of looks like an angel with arms and wings (see photo). When in condition, it offers a moderate-angled 3000' ski descent.
 
Friday night, we'll stay the night in a Salida motel and then head to Mt. Shavano early Saturday morning to summit, then ski or snowboard down the Angel!

For many years as I drove past San Antonio Mountain on my way to Alamosa I looked to the East and wondered what that obvious mountain was that almost looked like San Antonio's sister.  I later discovered it was named Ute Mountain.  I had climbed San Antonio several times, but didn't know how to get to Ute.  Luckily fellow LAM mountaineer Jason Halladay had posted a well written SummitPost route description.  I think it's time to check out the mountain!
