Add an Easter Egg Hunt to Your Itinerary When You’re Traveling with Little Ones
For many travelers, heading anywhere at all over Easter with the kids in tow without an Easter egg hunt on the agenda just won’t do. When the search must go on even when you’re far from home, Saddleback Mountain is the place to be when Rangeley is your vacation destination this Easter. The annual egg hunt and ski with the Easter Bunny event typically falls on Easter weekend and egg hunt groups are often broken up by age range to keep it fair and fun. The Easter egg hunt is generally held on Smelt Streamer, and there’s no cost to attend. Once the little ones have had their fill of egg hunting fun, the Golden Egg hunt opens up at Saddleback for older participants. The search for a single golden egg will get everyone in a fun and competitive spirit and the lucky finder will be able to redeem the egg for a prize. In the past, this has been as generous as a season ski pass. Beyond the egg hunt, this event also includes photos with the Easter Bunny himself. It’s a family-friendly experience you won’t want to miss out on when Easter travel brings you to Rangeley this year.
