Winter Park is full of tradition when it comes to Easter weekend. The first tradition puts to the test: is it easier to find Easter eggs against grass or a winter white background? To find out you will have to participate in Winter Park’s annual Golden Bunny Classic Candy Hunt and Fun Race. On April 8, 2012 this year, the Easter Bunny is set to make two bulk deliveries of candy for an on-mountain candy hunt and a non-skiing hunt (ages 5 & under). Those willing to brave searching for eggs and candy on skis head to the Porcupine and Bobcat Trails in Discovery Park. The youngsters can find a similar non-skiing hunt at the Zephyr Plaza near the Slopeside Mountain Adventure Center. Don’t worry parents if you are feeling left out you are allowed to help the non-skiers look for candy at the base.
Don’t be followed by this non-traditional egg hunt on skis. If you are looking for tradition join the 35 year old Golden Bunny Fun Race for children 10 and under. Also known as the “Fun Race” kids can run the course as many times as they would like until it closes at 1:30pm. After gorging on candy treats from the Easter Bunny, parents can agree that running around is a great way to combat the typical Easter sugar high.
All the fun is not left to the kids. For adults and older children there is a special “Easter Tour” snow cat tour that loops around the mountain giving access to beginner, intermediate and expert trails.
Easter egg hunts, a 35 year old Fun Race, and cat skiing all make Winter Park’s Easter weekend a well rounded one! Click here to book your Winter Park vacation today or call 1.800.978.4652 to speak with one of our Destination Experts.
