[J_Gasper]how is big sky late march/early april? have an opportunity to hop in with some buddies at a house.
Better than January. Early season snowpack (which I would argue extends until march most years) in Montana is pretty shitty. The dry continental snow doesnt stick to anything so shit will either not be open or be rocky as hell. Fun skiing starts in march most years consistently. I'm not saying you cant have epic december or january days, but the average day in march is much better.
Plus they dont blow snow in the parks here too, so you have to wait until that stacks up. Parks here start out pretty small, and get progressively bigger and nicer once enough snow stacks up to finally dig in features.
