      Any of the mountains in the northeast would be suitable in April. White
      Mountains, Adirondacks, Catskills. I hike in the Adirondacks and I've been
      chest deep in snow in mid June (although that is rare). Snow was pretty
      much gone by memorial day last year. Snowshoes and/or crampons are
      definitely needed to climb the high peaks in early may. The trails are
      usually still well packed snow and ice. I'll probably go on at least one
      trip up there in April so I'll volunteer to test the crampons. It is
      definitely late though. I have 4 more backpacking trips planned in the
      Adirondack high peaks this winter, but the last of them is mid march.

      >>>> I was afraid there wouldn't be all that much ice and snow on the east
      side. Is there any place back east that would still have ice then?
