Timberline runs it`s winter season usually until the end of May then goes to their summer season. Once that happens, the lower mountain is abandoned and you ride up on Magic Mile and Palmer all summer long. Mile is usually done by the middle of July and Palmer is the place until Labor Day when they shut down for a couple weeks for maintenance then open weekends only for fall.
If you are coming in April, you will for sure be able to ride Meadows and Timberline and most likely Ski Bowl. We have a pretty good snow pack in the southern Cascades in spite of the shitty weather the entire US has experienced this winter....
=0 YOU CAN STILL RIDE IN JULY?!?! I'm moving their. Blue Mountain(the mountain that I go to in PA) officially closes in the end of March, but its slushy since the end of February and always icey. Super jealous!
