Park City Mountain Resort celebrates Easter this Sunday, March 23, with an on-mountain Easter egg hunt featuring great prizes, a little kid's Easter egg hunt in the Kids' Corral, and free hot beverages for adults. But if you plan to hunt for eggs, you better get on it quick. Those things are swiped almost immediately. They're pretty much gone by 10 a.m. Resort employees lay them delicately within view of any intermediate skier throughout the hill and the locals make it a game to swipe as many as they can regardless of the rule of one egg per guest. Each egg contains prizes ranging from T-shirts to a season pass. Lifts open at 9 a.m. for the All Mountain/All Ages hunt and prizes are redeemable until 5 p.m. at the information desk located inside the Legacy Lodge. Your little ones might have better luck in the Little Kid's Easter egg hunt in the Kids' Corral (ages 6 and under) at 9 a.m. Get there early for your chance to meet the Easter Bunny. He arrives 8:45–9:00 a.m. to give out treats. Lifts open at 9 a.m. for the First Time Easter Egg Hunt (candy inside the eggs for kids) at the First Time lift. The Easter Bunny also will make stops at Deer Valley Resort, Alta, Snowbird, and The Canyons Sunday, March 23. DV guests are invited to bring a camera and have their picture taken with him around the Snow Park Lodge from 9-11 a.m. The Canyons will have Easter Brunch at The Cabin Restaurant from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., so drop in after their kids' hunt at 11 a.m. at Red Pine Lodge. There are two categories: Infant (4 years old) and 5-10 years old. The Easter Egg Hunt will be complimentary for participants, family, and friends. However, guests will not be able to bring ski or snowboard equipment with them on the gondola. Pick up your complimentary gondola-only passes at the Mountain Concierge. The Easter Bunny also will be hanging out at Red Pine Lodge. Alta hosts an Easter Egg Hunt for the little ones from 9-10 a.m. at Alta Java-Albion Grill with promises to have treats "other than candy" hidden by the bunny. Snowbird's Easter Bunny oversees their annual Easter egg hunt. The hunt is on the Plaza Deck starting at 9 a.m. with groupings for 4 and under, 5-7, and 8-11 so the big kids don't wipe out the little ones. Early birds and worshippers can take the first Tram to Hidden Peak (5:50 a.m.; the last Tram will leave at 7:05 a.m.) for a sunrise, non-denominational Easter Sunrise Service. Peter Cottontail skis down the bunny trail (at 9:30 a.m.) at Solitude to see all his little friends at the annual Children's Easter Egg Hunt slope-side at the Moonbeam base area. At Snowbasin, the little ones can work up an appetite with an Easter Egg Hunt at 9:30 a.m.; ages 7 to 12 at Little Cat and 6 and under at the Wildflower Meadows. There's a lavish Easter Sunday Brunch, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Earl's Lodge for those who would rather eat eggs than hunt for them. Adults cost $45; children (12 & under) are $30. Reservations are required so call 801-620-1021 if you're hungry.
