I would Consider Tahoe. I've done the April thing for the past six years. I've hit Summit County in CO, SLC in UT, and Tahoe. You're going to have some great spring conditions no matter where you go. I am a HUGE fan of the Spring conditions. If it isn't snowing, I'll take 50 and sunny with mashed taters and corn over 20 and sunny with wind-blown boiler yuk! The best April Snowfalls that I have encountered were in Tahoe, followed by UT, with CO way far behind. I hope this helps the decision making process and good luck with the Job!
Also, Kirkwood in CA (one of the best mountains to ride in the U.S.) usually does a late-march through end of season pass for 99 bucks. Finacially, that tastes pretty darn good!
