Arapahoe Basin in Colorado will be open until sometime in June. Generally the first week is when they close, mostly due to lack of business not snow. I think Snowbird in Utah will have some lifts spinning in June too. Utah got a good pounding of snow, so it's probably a good bet.
I wasn't aware that the Shasta remark would actually be worth considering: I'll look into the guide service you mention.
Thanks for the Shasta, Snowbird and A-Basin references: now it's research time.

I just found out that Big Bear will probably close in last April. I heard the 16th to be exact.

  1. Weekend snowboarding
  2. preferably freeriding
  3. in June
  4. at a ski-site within few hours drive from Irvine, California
  5. or within a short comercial flight from Irvine, California
  6. that won't cost an arm-and-a-leg ?
Any suggestions ?

What about Sierra at Tahoe, is it still snowy there that late in the game? YouTube - Big Air at Sierra at Tahoe
