CO skiing in April?

Has anyone gone skiing in CO in early April?  I was thinking of going over Easter.  How is it?

Re: CO skiing in April?

  • Pretty much every resort is open through April. Our snow has been down this winter, but there is still a lot of time left to get more snow.
  • It can be hit or miss.  All the resorts should be open - but the snow hasn't been great this year (although Steamboat did just get ~ 5 feet in the past 2 weeks).  Depending on what resort you want to go to there are a lot of fun events/festivals going on as the season winds down.  I was at Winter Park this weekend and some of the blue and black runs I was still skiing over rocks and shrubs....  the snow will probably be a little slushy - but usually there are more blue skies and 20-30 degree days which is awesome weather to ski in (bring your sunblock)

  • I agree with PPs, depends on the resort this year.  Steamboat has been doing really well with new snow, I would recommend going there for the best snow.

    If you're just a green skiier though, it shouldn't really matter, b/c all the greens will be groomed. 

  • I wouldn't plan on a big trip.  I've certainly skied in April, but that was when living in Denver.  I've also been stuck in a rainstorm in Vail the first week of April.

    It's so unpredictable I wouldn't invest in plane tickets and hotel reservations that are non-refundable.

    Steamboat might have a lot of snow at the moment (I'm quite jealous of the pics my friends are posting), but it's a fairly low resort.  Spring skiing there can be really really slushy.  And if you're a beginner skier (at most mountains) you're stuck toward the warmer slushier bottom.  Vail at least has high green runs.  It might be ok early April.
