Why visit Lake Tahoe on Easter? It’s simple, the eggs! Here are a few ‘eggscellent’ reasons to spend your Easter Sunday in our neck of the woods.

Easter Egg Hunts:

Take the tradition a step further and send your little ones searching for eggs mountain style in the snow.

Northstar California Resort in Truckee hosts an all-day Easter event including an Easter egg hunts in the village and on the hill, photos with the Easter Bunny, complimentary face painting, live music, parade, jelly bean contest, and scavenger hunt. On the hill, find the Easter Bunny making turns on his skis and roaming the Lodge at Big Springs.

Squaw Valley Ski Resort is still open, making a seamless transition from the ski slopes to the breakfast table. Entrees range between $10 and $30 dollars. We love the Maine Lobster Benedict and the PlumpJack mixologists make the best Bloody Marys in town. Don’t like eggs? Try the organic strawberry Belgian waffles with apple wood smoked bacon and pure maple syrup.  Reservations recommended-you can see why.
