Mt. Bachelor in Oregon is my recommendation. Mt. Bachelor has great spring snow and they do a great job grooming the snow to maximize its quality. They ski from 7:00 to 1:00 leaving you with the rest of the day to do other activities in the area like golf, mountain biking, white water and fishing. I would expect 50 to 70 percent of the mountain to be open which is a lot of terrain.
You obviously haven't been there recently-Bachelor got bought out by Park City (Powdr Corp.) and it is run by some people in it for the short-term buck. The mountain now closes at Memorial day, and 1 lift (Pine Marten) runs after late April. That is about 7 runs or so, a far cry from the days that we skied until the 4th of July from the Summit. They don't run that lift during summertime anymore because it would require the use of 2 lifts, not one
: , even though it opens up about 20 times as much terrain. Not to mention all of this was announced last year after season pass holders had made their $800 "pre-season local's deal" pass-yeah right. I shouldn't have gotten started about that joke of a "resort", I am in a bad mood now.
