As long as your flexible that time of year should not be a problem Of course if you go early April, chances are the only pass in the North that is open is 80, Sacramento to Reno. They actively keep 80 open, it does close but as fast as they can plow its open again, whereas the rest of them 4, 108, and 120, are close 'em until the spring thaw, usually late spring, usually they will open by Memorial Day.
This plan would almost always work.
From AZ, cut over to Santa Barbara and ride the costal highway, 1, to SF. From there 80 to Reno.
