Default Snowboarding Last Weekend of April?

Flying into Seattle the last weekend of April. Anybody know of any local resorts that will still be open? Hoping to get one more trip in for the season.

Stevens might still be open, they're open this weekend and next for sure, but the following weekend will be dependent on weather and snowpack. I believe Crystal is also planning on still being open as well.

Crystal will be open for spring ski. I believe they are trying to stay open until June.

awesome. I've snowboarded in Denver and Tahoe, how's the terrain over in Washington? a lot tougher? From pictures and videos, there looks like there's a lot more cliffs and steep. Also how are the terrain parks at Crystal and stevens compared to those in Denver and tahoe?

For some reason crystal has packed up its rails and closed the park for the season. I have no idea why.

Did Crystal have any park? I was there in January and it was a kiddie park.

I found Crystal to be more freeride and technical steeps on the right side (looking at the mt from the parking lot) and very technical on the backside. We were about to drop in when Patrol warned us not to, then closed the rope. We went to the front and it wasn't much easier. My legs were burning and it was the first major session of the year for us.

Stevens is closed, but I found it to be pretty cool. Mellow at spots, and steep at parts. A little in between but not much. I liked the terrain at Stevens for the conditions better, but I would have a lot of fun at Crystal if it snowed that's for sure.
