I have been lurking for a while and now I have decided to post my first thread. I am planning a 1 week long ski trip for my 30th birthday in April for either beginning or middle and late April. Alyeska is currently on top of my list. I wanted to ask what the snow conditions are like in April at Alyeska and whether is there a large difference between beginning and mid to late April? I realize it may vary a bit from year, but would be very curios to hear what are other people's experiences are. A bit about me and my skiing: intermediate/advanced skier, somewhat adventurous, trying to improve and started to venture off-piste. I could ski some of the groomed black diamonds at Snowbasin (I took part in Ski Diva West meet-up this winter). I was comfortable on all blue groomed blue slopes at Snowbasin. I will be traveling with my husband who is a solid intermediate skier as well. I am very much a novice where it comes to bumps, powder and trees, but I am trying to learn bumps and powder skiing whenever I have a chance.
Any information about Alyeska skiing in April would be very much appreciated.
