If you’re staying in Keystone this Easter holiday, rest assured that there are several activities for you and your family to partake in! Several towns throughout Summit County host Easter Egg Hunts as well as an Easter Bunny hanging out to enjoy the thrills of his holiday.
Conveniently located just over 13 miles from Keystone via US Hwy 6 and I-70, exit 203.
At noon, the school bell and police sirens will signal the beginning of the Easter Egg Hunt race open to children up to age 8. It is recommended that older children participate in the Copper hunt, just because the prizes in the eggs at Frisco are more suited to the younger ones. Don’t forget to stop and see the Easter Bunny! He’ll be hopping all around town during the Easter Egg Hunt, giving candy and toys to the kiddos. You can expect anywhere from 200 to 800 people to be involved – weather is always a factor in Summit County!
Just follow US Hwy 6 to I-70 and head west to exit 195; Copper Mountain is less than 20 miles from Keystone.
50,000 eggs should keep your entire family busy for quite a while! Prizes range from candy and small toys, to a season pass, a summer activity pass, even golf packages. For the adults, Copper is hosting Facebook Adult Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt. About 10 eggs will be hidden on the mountain, and their prizes are much more coveted! A Copper four-pack, Icelantic skis, snowboards, and more are offered in these eggs! At 1pm on Sunday, head over to Copper’s Main Vein Superpipe to watch skiers and snowboarders in awesome costumes show off their skills in the Peeps in the Pipe event! The Easter Bunny himself will make an appearance at 2. Hundreds of kids show up for this huge event in Copper, so make sure you get there plenty early!
Follow US Hwy 6 east for about 10 miles and you are there!
This is the place your family will want to be for an Easter Egg Hunt on skis! If you have a non-skier, no worries – they are welcome too. At 1pm on Sunday, skiers go to Wrangler; non-skiers will go to Molly Hogan. 2,000 eggs will be hidden all across the mountain, mostly loaded with candy. The Easter Bunny will show up at noon outside of the Snowsports Center – plenty of time to get the kids amped up for an awesome Easter Egg Hunt!
Follow US Hwy 6 west to Swan Mountain Road. Go south on Hwy. 9 for about 5 miles and you will be in Breck! From Keystone, it is about 14 miles in total. There are several egg hunts going on in Breckenridge throughout the weekend. On Saturday for the kids several activities will be taking place. Entertainment for the kids will include the Climbing Pit Scramble, Great Egg Scramble and Pool Scramble (plus more)! For adults, the Chamber will be hosting “Hoppy Hour” with 30 restaurants and business participating. The hunting begins at 5pm on Saturday. Sounds like fun! On Sunday, the family fun begins on Peak 8 at 9am with a mountain egg hunt. It is closing day for the mountain as well, so say goodbye ‘til next year by swinging by the Luau and Pig Roast at the T-Bar on Peak 8 until 6pm.
