Default What is still a good place to go in late April?

I'm still new and learning how long the season goes in diff. places... I'm in Washington state and so far appears even Schweitzer is only open til mid April... We'd like to take a 4 day vacation in later April... we can travel anywhere in the US or Canada... where would you suggest that would still have some good snow (powder preferably)? Right now where I'm at we've just got lots of ice.

Mountain Stats Loveland is boasting to be open until April but I can't promise anything just in case you find something better. I know I've ridden 420 before but other than that I can't really remember lol I'd call them and ask them if they are for damn sure that theyll be open, and that goes for any place you choose. Plan wisely grasshopper.

Hood Meadows, where I work is almost always open through May and we have more advanced terrain than Tline.
Hey thanks! Hood isn't too much farther away for us and we could make a weekend trip out of it.

Pow in April? Wolfy, April is like our 4th or 5th snowiest month in Colorado. We racked up a ton of powder days last season. Though if it's not snowing the powder lasts a day at most.

Loveland and A-Basin are the to Colorado players as mentioned for that time frame. You could easily have a powder day. For that late in the season though, I always recommend California. It can dump there during that time and if not, the weather is generally perfect. Warm with lot's of sunshine and perfect corn. Two seasons ago they had an April where they got almost 40 ft of snow. So you never know...

Yes, Mt Hood is a good choice. Whistler, Mammoth, Arapahoe Basin (aka A-Basin) and Snowbird are the others that will be open. I've seen Snowbird get powder through May but I don't really recommend it right now if you're still learning.
