Hunt for Eggs, Not Activities: A Guide to Easter in Breck


Easter in BreckenridgeEaster Weekend marks the onset of spring, which might make you think that ski season’s end is near. But, as we type this, one of the biggest blizzards of the season is thumping down on the Town of Breck, and we can’t wait to hop around in some POW. Celebrating Easter in Breckenridge might just be the most egg-cellent decision you make this year. The family can still enjoy traditions such as decorating eggs, eating delicious candy and filling bouquets with lilies while forming new customs like skiing under blue bird skies, slopeside egg hunting and joining in Breck’s
Spring Fever festival.
