Well, it depends on how you define fun. I wasn't there, but have done some spring skiing. The key is to not view the skiing as the "goal" that makes it worthwhile. If you view the day as hiking in a beautiful place, getting exercise with friends, and as a bonus you get to ski down instead of hike down, then it is SOOOO worth it. But if you are in it just for the skiing, you'll say "damn, I just hiked miles and miles for this???"
And the snow can vary, sometimes it is "rutty" but soft, and other times it's just shite.
