Tahoe Late Season

So, here's an el nino question. Being teacher-boy, I have a week off at the end of march for easter break. I am looking to make a trip, and I want to "Guage" weather patterns. All I've been reading is that SLC gets all sorts of El Nino snow on the back-half of the season. I also see that Tahoe (Kirkwood) got HAMMERED this past week. Seriously? Seven Feet!?! Seriously!?!

Is it safe to assume that Tahoe will continue to get decent snowfalls throughout the rest of the season, or are they the inverse of the Rockies in El-Nino. (I.E. Tahoe snow falls heavy in early season and weak snowfall late season.) I'm bringing my lady friend along, so Tahoe would work best with all of the other silly things to do,but if the fresh snowfall won't be there, I'd much rather hit SLC for the fresh snow. I was in Kirk, last year, over easter and got 3 7 inch days, which made for a perfect set of riding days. I could handle that again, I don't need 7 feet!

I'll do some research on this for daily snowfalls, but I figured I'd throw this out there to those in the know.

You can't go wrong with Tahoe in the spring imo. March is often a very snowy month around there. If it isn't, the spring corn skiing in Tahoe is second to none. So it's almost always a win-win...

One of my best Spring days I can recall was in early April at Alpine Meadows. I agree, you can't go wrong.

Seriously. I was there yesterday. It snowed all day, big and heavy. Temps was never above 22...and HW88 was snowed up all the way down the valley...Ice and fog for the last upper 15 miles....took me forever to get down.
And it keeps snowing today..check the cam. It was too much for my non-powder board yesterday...suuper light sugar like pow, really hard to float on and waist deep sugar anywhere outside boundaries...
