Sugar Bowl Resort...
This is not your average Easter egg hunt. On Saturday, April 16 Sugar Bowl Resort is going to run the Easter Keg Hunt for guests ages 21+ (who said adults can’t have their own Easter “keg” hunt?!).

Details:  A Pony Keg will be hidden on the mountain and the hunt starts at 10 AM. Clues will be provided via facebook.com/sugarbowlresort and on the dry-erase  boards at lifts. Find the keg and get a card for 12 free beers at the Belt Room Bar good for the remainder of the season. Obviously, 21+ only.

At Sugar Bowl, kids ages 6 to 12 are invited to hunt for candy-filled eggs hidden around Nob Hill at 9:00 AM. The Golden Egg Hunt starts at the same time, and is a hunt for a Golden Egg with a 2017-18 Midweek season pass inside! "Kids" ages 6-101 are invited to search for the Golden Egg.

Northstar California
Celebrate the Easter holiday at Northstar California with festive activities for all ages. They will host an egg hunt all over the Village at Northstar starting at 11:00 AM, face painting, crafts, live music, jelly bean contest and more! The Easter Bunny himself will be there for photo opportunities around the Ice Skating Rink in the Village.

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows
Search in the spring snow for colorful eggs during Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows Easter egg hunts. Or in true winter fashion, guests to Alpine Meadows can also do some searching with the help of technology during the Beacon and Eggs Avalanche Beacon Scavenger Hunt. PLUS... join in the hunt for one golden egg at Alpine Meadows AND one at Squaw Valley. Each golden egg will contain a voucher for a Bronze 2017-18 Tahoe Super Pass. Stay tuned to their app as they release clues to find the eggs throughout the day. Good luck! 



Penney the Bunny is making a visit to The Lodge Restaurant & Pub at Tahoe Donner where they will host a delicious all-you-can-eat Easter brunch buffet and Easter Eggstravaganza hunt for the kids with plenty of eggs to go around. Kids 12 and under will enjoy carnival games, spoon races, crafts, face painting and a performance by Penney the Bunny.
