Easter in Lake Tahoe is a very unpredictable holiday. During the past three years I’ve been living in Lake Tahoe two were spent skiing on the mountain while last year I was BBQing on the beach with friends soaking up warm springtime weather. Easter can be a tough holiday for local families and visitors to plan for in Lake Tahoe. With forecasters predicting tomorrow will be mix of snow showers and rain at lake level while snowing on the summits, it’s best to be prepared for Easter Holiday events both indoors and outdoors. Here I want to share some of the best Easter Holiday events and activities for your celebration tomorrow!
GET YOUR GOLDEN EGG
While rain and snow may damper Easter Holiday celebrations in other places limiting the Easter Bunny to hide eggs inside family homes, it just makes the Easter egg hunt more exciting in Lake Tahoe as families head to the mountains while searching for golden easter eggs stuffed with specialty prizes. Most resorts are hosting special on mountain Easter egg hunts including Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe, Alpine Meadows, Northstar California, Diamond Peak, Squaw Valley, Tahoe Donner and Homewood. Here are a few Easter events in particular I would like to highlight:
All-Mountain Easter Egg Hunt & Kids Easter Egg Hunt at Alpine Meadows – Alpine Meadows adult guests will search the mountain amongst hundreds of hidden eggs for one golden egg containing a Bronze Season Pass in the free Adult Easter Egg Hunt. The all-day hunt will begin when lifts open at 9 a.m., and last until 4 p.m. For Kids there will be two separate Easter Egg hunts depending on children’s ages. Families meet at the Kids Camp Magic Carpet at 10:15 a.m.
Easter Eggstravaganza at Homewood Resort – Giant Eggs will be hid all over the mountain at Homewood and guests will redeem fun prizes at the North Lodge between 9am-1pm. Included in the prizes is a Golden Basket with a Season Pass for 2013-2014! A Mini Egg Hunt for kids will be filled with candy and one lucky mini egg will have a grand mini prize along with visits from the Easter Bunny.

The Easter Bunny will also travel throughout the mountain hiding golden eggs that will contain a variety of prizes. The festivities conclude at 4:45 p.m. with a parade through the Village lead by the Easter Bunny and Northstar Ski & Snowboard School mascot Ripperoo.
