Climbed Shooting Star today. The coulior is still in good shape. The right exit is melted out and is blocked with a cornice, the left exit was snow all the way to the top. We started at 5:30 a.m. from the Saint Mary's parking lot but a 4:00 a.m. would be better since the snow on the approach would have been more firm. Axes and crampons were all we needed. 2 axes recommend, microspikes would be useless.
Super Star looked like it would be a beating, very thin is some parts. Looks like some snow Saturday, Sunday would be a awesome day to go.
