Banff Ski Conditions in late April

My family has it's first trip to Canada planned for Easter Week ( 4/17- 4/26/03 ) and I am worried about the ski conditions at this time. Locals- what is our vacation going to be like in the second half of April?
Please reply.

It really depends on the seasons. Some seasons I have skied Lake Louise and Sunshine well into May and other seasons the snow was gone by mid March. I would suggest that your best bet would be Sunshine because it is higher altitude and tends to have better snow other than that it is all up to mother nature! Also be aware that anywhere in The Canadian Rockies from March onward is considerd "spring skiing conditions" which means that there could be exposed rock, slush etc.

Hmmmmm not sure about Whistler's spring skiing. My experience is that Whistler gets more snow but it is wet and very slushly in the spring. I would take the rockies for skiing in a heartbeat.

will probably be just fine. at that time of year if it is warm, most people hit the slopes right when they open cause by late afternoon, the lower runs may be slushy.
