Amazing day at Beaver Creek today- 1/2 foot of fresh dry light powder (on top of nearly 2 feet in the past 2 days), ideal mid-winter conditions, and snowing hard after 3pm. This is in contrast with last Thursday at Vail, when there were 2 cold days following 2 warm ones, resulting in a frozen surface that loosened ones teeth going over the previous days solidified tracks (I assume conditions at Vail today were just like BC- great!). Bottom line- April is unpredictable! We get some fantastic days and some not so great ones.
re: your inquiry about A-Basin and Loveland- they will be open (the basin until the bitter end, loveland until May sometime), but they are ski areas, not destination resorts. Best bets for places to stay with something to do are in Summit Co.- Breckenridge is a nice town, and not very far away (15 minutes or so). Nice coffee houses, bars, bookstores, restaurants, bike paths, etc.
