Feb went by without a trip getting planned. Next school vaca is April 21-24.
We're in the Boston area, have a 7yo kid, and, although I like some adventurous skiing, the wife and kid need civilized blues and greens, slope-side lodging, and some stuff to do besides skiing (a nice pool and a village with a place to sip cappucinnos is fine).
I ski east as late as mid-April every season but it is indeed a crap-shoot. Sunday River and Sugarloaf might be in full operation with awesome skiing or there might be five trails of slush left. The wife also doesn't like spring conditions that much.
I'm wondering just what it would cost and whether it would be worth it to go west or if we should just wait til next Feb.
I know Snowbird is open. Funny thing is the PSIA spring rally is that week. I'm PSIA but the wife and kid aren't. Would be wierd being at a mountain with all the other PSIA members and not skiing with them. I checked the Alta web site and Beaver Creak web site and they are closed by then.
So is there anything worth flying to from Boston that wouldn't break the bank?
If not, I guess we could play it by ear and go east coast if the conditions are good or maybe just save our money for next feb.
