Golden Egg Hunt

SATURDAY APRIL 16

Mt. Baker Golden Egg Hunt

Get your thinking caps and your eagle-eyes ready, because the Mt. Baker Golden Egg Hunt is back on Saturday April 16th!


For all ages in the Main Hunt, we've got two Mt. Baker Season Passes up for grabs!
For Kids ages 10 & Under, we have two separate hunts with 5,000 eggs filled with fun prizes!
We've got preliminary details below and will be posting more info in the next week, so make plans now to bring your friends and family up for a fun day of shredding and egg hunting!

MAIN HUNT • ALL AGES

PRIZES: 2 Golden Eggs, each containing a certificate for a 2022-23 Mt. Baker Season Pass!

WHEN: Saturday April 16 from 9:00 am – lifts closing, or when the Golden eggs are found, whichever comes first.
WHO: All ages of skiers and snowboarders with a valid lift ticket or season pass riding the chairlifts on day of the hunt are eligible to participate.
WHERE: On some of the runs accessed from Chairs 4, 5, 7 & 8. Check back later for a map of the designated egg hunting areas!
CLUES: The Golden Eggs will be hidden in places that can only be found by putting together clues that we provide (unless you’re incredibly lucky and happen to stumble across a hiding spot)
– Things that might (or might not) be helpful in using the clues to figure out the location of a Golden Egg: current trail map, google, transceiver, shovel
– The first clues will be posted on the online snow report in the morning for the locations of the eggs.
– If the golden eggs aren’t found by 10:00 a.m., we will begin posting clues every hour or half hour on white boards posted at the bottom of chairs 1, 3, 7 and in front of the Raven Hut.

• Egg Hunt rules and maps will be handed out the morning-of the event.

If you see any colored eggs on the slopes of Chairs 2, 3 or 7, those eggs are for the Kids Hunt! Please leave them for kids ages 10 & under to pick up. (They contain squishy toys, stickers, or other fun stuff for kids) These eggs cannot be returned for additional prizes like in years past.
