The main issue you are looking at is probably the most crowded time (to the week)for CO snowsliding. (the whole country, from age 4-22 is on spring fucking break, and they love beginner ski and falling leaf). Weekdays are not much less crowded than weekends at this time.
We typically have great snow this time of year, and all the resorts you mentioned will usually share storms but for sure not always, plus everyone lies about snow totals. South is a whole different destination/weather system (Wolf Creek, Silverton, etc).
Probably have to book your lodging now.
Getting out of the i70 corridor is your only ticket to less crowds, but again, the lemmings will be everywhere!
