A big factor is the orientation of the slopes to the sun, which rises in the southeast, but comes further north with each day until the solstice in June.

Does anyone have experience with trails at Northeast Ski Areas in April that stay shady until late in the morning, keeping the coldness of the previous night?

If you come to Hunter in March, I can tell you exactly where the surface stays cold until 11 AM, or even later, when the sun comes over the mountain; looking for the same kind of info from people who ski anywhere in the Northeast, in April.
