As long as you don't have high expectations you'll be fine. The weather is highly variable as it changes seasons so previous seasons and what happened can only predict so much. If April is sunny and warm it will roast the snow pretty quickly.

We've had a LOT of snow this year. I'm sure you'll be fine. If you go on a weekend, check out a-basin. If the snow sucks, you can always drink beer with us in the parking lot if you go on the weekend. Get there early; parking will suck since Keystone closes the previous week, so the front rangers will just drive a bit further down the street to get to easy mountain access.

It'll be spring riding conditions, so if you've ridden in the spring before, you'll know what to expect. If it's sunny, it can be slushy, but that's not a bad thing for snowboarding. You'll have a good time.
