I think it has the whole package deal there - great skiing, Snowmass has everything from groomers to steeps, plenty of altitude so you should have good conditions, Aspen is fun to hang around in. Plenty of different happy hours to hit. If you have wheels she can head north toward Glenwood Springs and go up there and enjoy the lounging in the hot spring / pools.
    this sounds interesting.

    Well the saving grace is colder temps at night. Weather is starting to cool down after today. Snow is expected this week and it looks like we make get into a pattern of goodness. I would not dismiss Steamboat just yet. There are plenty of options once you are here or allow your choice to be determined the week before.

    my biggest concern at this point is that a lot of the places i'm looking to ski (trying to find a new never been to place) are targeting the 4/16 weekend as closing date. i'm a little worried that they won't be putting in much effort in the week leading up to that with less mid-week traffic.

    but as they say... a bad day of skiing in the west beats a good day in the east

    Good thing I did not post that! I am still happy with the season as a whole. Pretty consistent overall! No deep freezes, lots of terrain and with about 25 days in still finding new trails!

    Gonna be in CO weekend of April 21-23, flying in and out of Denver and with a place to stay in Ft. Collins.

    What seems most likely to be open and decent then?

    I guess the closest to be guaranteed to be open then is Loveland at about 2 hours from Ft. C. A-Basin too, just a few minutes farther. Some of the others like Winter Park, Copper, Breck, Keystone, Vail, etc you will have to verify if they are still open then.

    It ain't over yet.....at least not in Utah. I imagine that CO has a similar forecast this week:

    This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the western two thirds of
    Utah and southwest Wyoming.

    .DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

    Gusty southwest winds will bring another mild day to the region.
    The threat of showers increases tonight with the arrival of a cold
    front.

    .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

    A storm system will affect the region Wednesday and Thursday.
    Showers will become more widespread midweek and may be locally
    heavy especially across portions of southern Utah and northwest
    Utah. Snow levels fall from near 9000 feet Wednesday morning, to
    7000 feet by Thursday morning. Significant snowfall is possible in
    the mountains, with winter driving conditions on the mid and high
    elevation roadways.

    Another cool and wet storm is expected for the upcoming weekend.
