Alpine Meadows holds egg hunt and ski race for kids

The Alpine Meadows annual Easter celebration is fast approaching.

Kids can ski for free in the Easter race while adults are encouraged to partake in the annual (adults only) Easter egg hunt.

The prizes are even sweeter than candy: plastic eggs hidden around the mountain will be filled with dinner certificates, lift tickets and other great prizes.

If you’re the lucky one who discovers the Golden Egg, you win a 2000-2001 Alpine Meadows season pass. The hunt is free of charge.

There will be lots of candy, provided by none other than the Easter Bunny.

With a snow depth of 12 feet at mid-mountain, Alpine Meadows offers great spring skiing and boarding conditions along with a fun way to celebrate Easter. For information on the Easter Kids’ Race and the Adult Easter Egg Hunt, contact Alpine Meadows at (530) 581-8321.
