Snowboarding in April... Where to go?

Just got back from Denver, had an amazing time snowboarding, but I didn't get my fix for the season yet. Where, if anywhere, can I board in North America in April with decent snow?

Colorado will be open. With the solid base we have sun or snow it should be great. Jackson or Utah would probably not be a bad call either.

You looking for powder in april or corn/spring shredding? Mt. Bachelor was open until Memorial day last year. Fun wet corn surfing to be had. If your looking for powder, there's no telling where it could fall. It varies every season. Point, shoot, aim, hope.

Nakiska is open until end of April, Lake Louise early May, Sunshine May 24...

Hit 1' of fluffy powder in early May a couple years ago at Lake Louise. Fluffy powder up top (and 0 degrees), beers and good times at the bottom (and +10 degrees!!!)
