My friends and I are hoping to snowboard April 16-19. We're beginners, and are thinking about Colorado. I know that it'll be towards the end of the season, but will there still be enough snow to board? Thinking about a-basin, copper, and loveland. Thanks for any help/ advice.
At least a-basin and loveland will both still be open and have snow. I'm not sure about copper and when it plans to close. Understand this will be late season snow. So it could be icy, slushy, dirt patches, wet snow, etc.
Here's an email I got from copper mountain:
Thank you for your inquiry. We will be open to the public until April 24, 2011 this year. Conditions are typically spring skiing conditions and we have an amazing base this year, so you could likely expect that to be true. Of course, mother nature could throw us a curve ball, but likely you would expect spring conditions. Our elevation typically allows us to hold better snow than most ski areas, therefore making the skiing pretty good in April.
