I'm going to be at a user conference at the end of April, which is probably way too late to get on a mountain, but I figured I'd check, as I'd love to ski Kirkwood again

It really all depends on snow.
As for those "firm" Heavenly dates, you all must be riding at a different Heavenly than me.
I swear that they were open until Mid-May last season (like the 21st/22nd).
The only resorts that tend to close "early" are those like Northstar who start making the shift to Golf around first sunny afternoons (usually late March early April).
|Despite hefty snowpack, Sierra ski resorts closing for season from the Palm Desert (CA) KESQ-TV - Sunday, April 23, 2006
RENO Despite receiving a mountain of snow the last two months, Sierra ski resorts are beginning to close for the season.
Heavenly and Northstar-at-Tahoe are among resorts shutting down lifts today, a week after Boreal and Soda Springs set the flurry of closures in motion.
With daytime highs in the Reno-Lake Tahoe area expected to hit the 70s and 80s later in the week, resort operators say, skiers and snowboarders are focusing on other activities such as golf and hiking.
As usual, Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley and Mammoth Mountain hope to be the last Sierra resorts to close _ sometime after mid-May.
Mammoth Mountain plans to stay open through the Fourth of July weekend after receiving the most snow in its 38-year history.
