My kids have a super late spring break, 2nd week in April this year. Anyone skied Whistler in mid April? Weather ok? Rain an issue? Other insights? Thanks.

You're probably less likely to get rain on mid-mountain and lower in April than you would be in January. Lots of snow so far this winter so snowpack should be plentiful. As long as you're not expecting light fluffy powder, you should have a great time--although I've had everything from downpours to pow in April in the Northwest. In general, weather should be better than January-February, good chance of nice corn snow on south-facing slopes, off-chance of good fresh on northern aspects. Also a decent chance for climbing at Squamish!

Whistler is worth every dollar. Best skiing/ snowboarding of my life.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
