Well heck, Steamboat and Aspen both tend to suck more than Breck for April skiing, so I really don't even understand the point of the recommendation.
Might I recommend Aruba? I hear the beaches are fantastic.
hannah only says that she can't make it to colorado until feb. 26th - that's not exactly april. personally, having spent six seasons in colorado, i have seen dry ground at breck during every possible winter month of the year. i have found the snow on the western slope to be more consistant, and steamboat just rocks.
everyone has their fav. resorts. you can rest assured you will never have to deal with me at breck, though. i personally find the snow level and degree of steepness at breck to be about the same as in aruba - except it's windy and cold to boot.
hannah - the earlier you can get out to colorado, the more luck you'll have. that said, anytime in march is usually pretty sweet in colorado in general - it's usually quite a snowy month!
