Ski bunnies of the world move over! For one day this season, there’s a new bunny on the slope, and this one’s carrying baskets full of special treats. That’s right: Easter is right around the corner, and Easter in Breckenridge definitely involves a bunny.

This year, Easter happens to fall on the last day of March.
Which means that it is likely to be a sun-soaked day of corn skiing and Easter activities. Easter in Breckenridge is like setting the pause button—if only briefly—to take in the absolute beauty of our mountains. It prompts all of us to stop and appreciate the pine forests, the white snow, the blue sky, and the sun. Easter Egg Hunt

Whether you celebrate Easter as a secular holiday or a religious one, be assured that Breckenridge has a number of events on tap. Here’s a sampling:

Sunrise Easter Service – 6:00 a.m
A true pilgrimage for snow lovers, the Sunrise Easter Service starts at the Quicksilver lift and whisks riders to the summit to watch day break and give thanks long before most people even roll out of bed. The lift ride is free; no ski or snowboard equipment allowed.

Brunch – Various locations
We’ll take any excuse to load up plates with sausage, eggs, pancakes, fresh fruit, and Easter in Breckenridge delivers. Look for brunch specials at the Maggie, Seven’s Restaurant and more.

Easter Egg Hunt – On mountain
Shuss your way all over Breckenridge in search of Easter goodies during the Easter Egg Hunt. The Easter bunny will distribute more than 10,000 plastic Easter eggs throughout Breckenridge. All will contain treats; some will contain bigger prizes.

Spring Fever events
And, of course, Easter falls in the middle of Breckenridge’s Spring Fever. Check out our site for lodging deals and fun events. And then give thanks to whichever higher power calls to you and spend this Easter Sunday in the outdoors.
