still worth riding in march/april (east coast)
 
I just bought all of my equipment(K2 Podium 156, Salomon F20's, Ride EX bindings) and I'm souped on using it now and not having to wait til the fall. Do you think it's still worth hitting up a place now? I went to camelback last weekend (the 16th) and by mid afternoon everything was slush.

The mountains of Northern Vermont (Smugg's, Killington, Stowe) all still have a good base, and have gotten snow as recently as two days ago (stowe reports over 1 foot in the last 48 hours). I went to Smuggs two weeks ago, and it was a great weekend.

I forgot to mention southern Vermont, also. Mt. Snow for example is still almost 100% open, and has had over a foot of natural snow sometime in the past 10 days. They also have some of the newest snow gun technology at Mt. Snow, and have been/will be blowing snow for a few weeks still...

Big Boulder stays open until mid april usually, if a resort is open it is always worth it to go.

I f you don't mind driving head to northern Vt, they are still in great condition. Global "weirding" is in effect, plus VT has been know for good riding till early April.
