Skiing in late March, Lake Tahoe?

I'm organizing a ski trip for the last weekend in March, and am thinking of Lake Tahoe, mainly because it'll be easiest to get to for the rest of my group, who are coming from all around the country. Is the snow usually good at that time in the season? Is there somewhere else in the western U.S. that I'm overlooking?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

As a former climber let me suggest that you also consider the altitude of the various places that have good snow in March.

Usually, the best snow will be at the highest altitudes, but it's no fun to fall over from altitude sickness on a perfect sunny powder day. In many places the base lodge is at 8 - 10,000 feet, which can be quite a blow to the bodies of us flatlanders.

I've been there last year at the end of February and it was great. The snow was great too.

I have never went to Tahoe but I have been to Keystone it is very nice they also have night skiing. Great for beginners and intermediates. Do you have the same group come each year? I am looking for someone to join up with to Ski my wife doesn't Ski and my son is 2. It is just too much risk to be out their all by yourself.

Maybe Squaw or Kirkwood. Snow gets mushy and heavy late in the day.

Or Alta/ Snowbird in Utah.

I hear Mammoth is good but I've never been.

Schusster, you will not have
any doubts of staying there.
It's one of the best place for skiing.
You and your peers will surely enjoy it.
