Spring Snowboarding in April?
 
I am a new snowboarder and want to enjoy this amazing sport well into spring. Considering previous seasons with snow totals such as this year, where are the best spots for spring snowboarding? Also, what is this skim the pond business I hear about...

Your best bets for April and May are going to be larger resorts like Killington or Sugarloaf. Otherwise out west.

Conditions will degrade significantly by mid-April and the open terrain will likely be more advanced.

Your enthusiasm is awesome, BTW. (This thread and the airbag!) Keep it up and you will be ripping it up in no time.

We'll have spring pow at snowbird. We didn't stop riding till May 27th last season.

It's something done at the end of the season when all the snow is melting
