In general, the weather is more pleasant towards the end of winter – so you can expect more sun, longer daylight hours, and longer lift operating times. However, it’s not uncommon to get cold weather and heavy snow even in April, so don’t assume that the sun will definitely have its hat on, and always come prepared for good, snowy weather.
