Obviously, the snow quality out West is going to be superior out west in late March or early April, as the snow quality is superior there year round (from what I understand, at least, I've never skied in New Englad). That said, I'm hoping to get one last ski trip in this year, and I'm trying to get some feedback on what my options are.
I live in Philadelphia, so while Vermont isn't necessarily any closer travel time-wise than heading to Denver or Salt Lake City instead of VT (flying vs. driving), going to Vermont is more viable for me in this particular case for reasons such as cost/etc (no plane tickets, no rental car).
What can I expect snow-quality wise out west and in New England in the next 3-4 weeks? Is Vermont even viable, or has is warmed up too much? I'm pretty certain that CO/UT will yield good conditions, but not sure I can pony up the cash needed to make the trip happen.
Also - how late into April do good conditions hold (typically) in these locations?
Any feedback is appreciated.
