It was looking a little grim with 50 degree days in the middle of Feb, but a couple of storms have brought the base up and the mountain (SR) has been heavily making snow in prep for the holiday weeks. March is usally good for a couple of snow dumps, so early April shouldn't be a problem... if you don't object to hard snow in the morning and soft snow later in the day. However, if March snows don't cooperate and the temps rise again, it could be very limited skiing. In that case I'd bet on SR.
WC usually closes* earlier (mid/late April) ... SR usually the first of May. (*WC runs the gondola for sightseeing all spring\summer.)
