Easter at Vail

Apr. 2, 2015

Easter sunrise service VailJoin us for our Easter tradition, the sunrise service at the top of Vail Mountain! Not much of an early riser? That’s okay. We have two other services lined up throughout the day.

Our annual interdenominational sunrise service on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015 at 6 a.m. inside at Eagle’s Nest – that’s right, inside, so no worries about getting chilly standing outside! The Eagle Bahn Gondola will open to the public at 5:30 a.m. to transport guests from Lionshead. Complimentary baked goods and beverages will be provided.

For those planning to attend the Easter sunrise service, the Town of Vail is offering free parking for vehicles that enter the Lionshead parking structure after 5 a.m. and depart prior to 10 a.m. Upon departure, attendees should inform the booth attendants they were at the service.

For the sunrise service, the gondola ride is complimentary and guests are not permitted to bring skis or snowboards. Following the service, guests will be asked to download the gondola. Guests will need a lift ticket or scenic ride ticket for the 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. services.

Saturday, April 4 will be the Lionshead Easter Egg Hunt! Families and their children, ages two to 10, are invited to attend. The free event will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a visit by the Easter Bunny followed by a quest for prizes and eggs at 10 a.m. The event will be held rain, snow or shine.
