Any time except April and November. The area has much more to offer than skiing. If you enjoy hiking come in September and the first half of October. If you don't ski you can go snowboarding, x-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating. Besides, even if you don't ski or snowboard you can sign up for a lesson or two and learn to ski. You may surprise yourself. I did many years ago and then I taught downhill skiing. It is never too early or too late to learn.
