1. Re: Spring skiing

In three of the past four years we've had a HUGE dump of snow at the beginning of April. Even on closing day, the resort has plenty of snow. The reason closing day is fixed is related to a forest service lease of the land (that and bears start to come out of hibernation). Otherwise, it's great skiing. Many of my friends continue to hike the resort through most of the month of April because the conditions are still really good.

Because the ski area is at a pretty high altitude (base area is 9380 ft), the snow stays really good through mid-April - and crowds are non-existent. Great time to be in CB!
