Copper Mountain is THE place to be Easter weekend with Colorado's largest Easter egg hunt and the Color Run's first 5K snow run.

So, maybe I am prone to just a wee bit of exaggeration but when Good Morning America reports that your Easter Egg Hunt is one of the world’s six best (lumping it with egg hunts at a famous castle in France and Fabergé's Big Egg Hunt in London), you know it’s gotta be good.
Just how good? On Easter Sunday (April 20, 2014) at 10 a.m., Copper Mountain hosts the largest Easter Egg Hunt in Colorado. Over 50,000 eggs will be up for grabs in Center Village.
Don’t worry about your little kids getting trampled; each search is dividing by age group and the prizes are worth it—everything from a few special “Copper Eggs” hidden on the mountain to other great prizes, including candy, shopping sprees at Copper, season passes, gear, gift certificates and even a GoPro.
And the kicker? The Easter Bunny himself will be sticking around for photos at West Lake in Center Village, followed by an egg decorating party at noon with all your leftover treasures.
Be sure to make a weekend of it by participating in The Color Run’s first 5k snow run on Saturday, April 19, 2014. As a part of the 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour, runners will wind along a manicured snow path through the resort with a few small rolling hills on a snow-packed course. During this un-timed race, runners (or walkers) are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer.
Touted as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, Copper Mountain will be slightly more challenging than their regular races but is super family-friendly—it’s less about speed and more about crazy color fun with friends and family.
