Riding in Spring?

What is the warmest temperature you've ridden in? It's getting pretty warm here on the east coast (50s) and with another week or 2 left of the season, I was considering hittin the slopes a few more times but was thinking the snow would be way too slushy and I won't have as much fun and don't want to waste my money. What do you guys think?

I plan on going to Stowe Easter weekend. They have 88 trails open right now, had snow the other day and base temps are only in the low 40's. I am expecting it will be decent enough to squeeze out one or two more days.

2 years ago i rode in about mid 60's, in the morning it was fine but later on it started to get slushy, tried to stay to the shady sides of the mountain,which helped.

It's been in the 60s in my local mountains for a while now. It's fun, but feels like falling into a body of water when you take a spill.
