We are driving to BC on highway 84 or 15. Which mountain pass is the best one to use in mid April ?

Like everyone else who has responded to your question, I am assuming your references to highways 84 and 15 are US Interstates 84 and 15. As others have mentioned neither road will get you to BC. They have also mentioned that your best bet is taking I15 to I84 (near the UT/ID border) and take I84 west to I5 in OR. I5 north gets you to the WA/Canadian border just south of Vancouver, BC. None of these interstates have high mountain passes or cross any significant mountain ranges on this route.

That said, it is still possible to have snowstorms this late in the season that will negatively effect roads even if they do not reach 5-6,000' in elevation.
