When is a good weekend to go snowboarding in Lake Tahoe/ Truckee?

I've been dying to go snowboarding, but the weather out here on the west has been warmin' up! I usually hit up Boreal park in Truckee since it's close to home here in the bay. I was planning to go this MLK weekend, but I may just cancel. Does anyone know a good time to get soft fresh snow up in tahoe/truckee???

    Anytime between now and March is pretty much guaranteed to have good snow. After that, April should be OK, but there's a greater chance of rocks poking through in the middle of runs. Past that, its a crap shoot for how good it'll be.

    The weather forecast for the next several days is for sun and moderate temps. I haven't been to Boreal, but all the other resorts have had good coverage. If I were you, I'd head up any way.

    I like to go for spring break in March. But if you are looking for fresh pow you may want to go up sooner.
