Hi, 2 of us want to come to Colorado the weekend of April 12th. We want to ski cheap but be sure to have decent snow. Where would you suggest to go and stay and at what hotel that is clean but not fancy and close to a ski-in ski-out? What ski resort would you recommend? Where would you fly into? I have passes to fly from Dallas. I skiied at Breakenridge many years ago. Is the snow good at all resorts? I know it is spring, but we don't want slush. I understand the snow season ends on April 22nd. any help or suggestions would be helpful. Jim

Default spring skiing

You will be fine wherever you go. This is Colorado and most snow comes in the spring months.

You should be fine wherever you decide to go, as previously said. Summit County is one of the most popular areas, as it is home to a number of ski resorts (Copper, Breckenridge, A-Basin, Keystone) and is close to others (Winter Park, Loveland). You are late enough that you can also get some good discounts (PM me if you want details). Your best bet will likely be to fly into Denver, which gives you easy access to the Summit County resorts. If you have passes you could also look into flying into Vail, but that will most of the time be much more expensive than flying into Denver.

Steamboat definitely has done better in snow conditions this year than Summit County resorts...i would definitely consider Steamboat. Plus a lot of lodging companies offer end of season discounts because it is coming to an end. The only issue is Steamboat closes on April 15th so not sure if you'd be up for only 3 days. But there are direct flights from Dallas to Hayden (Steamboat's Airport about 20 minutes away)
