Hundreds Spend Easter at Mt. Ashland

While most people spent their Easter Sunday hunting for Easter eggs in the grass, hundreds of skiers and snowboarders spent their day hitting the slopes on Mt. A and, of course, hunting for The Golden Egg.

ASHLAND, Ore. -- While most people spent their Easter Sunday hunting for Easter eggs in the grass, hundreds of skiers and snowboarders spent their day hitting the slopes on Mt. A.

"I'm here for snowboarding and we're here for Easter egg hunt today and we come snowboarding every single weekend and it's a lot of fun," said 10-year-old snowboarder Shyanne Alewine.

And of course hunting for eggs in the snow. But not just any plastic egg, skiers and snowboarders spent the day searching the trails for Mt. Ashland’s coveted golden egg. Inside was a prize any local winter sport lover would be excited to win, a free 2018-2019 season pass to Mt. Ashland.

Little skier Campbell was the lucky winner. Her family is ready for next winter to roll around.

"They were just stoked. They were so excited. It was basically hidden within a hole inside of tree. Although it looked really obvious that that might be a place where an egg is, I sat and watched people ski by it pretty much all morning. It was really great to see a young kid come up and find that," said General Manager Hiram Towle.

Skiers and snowboarders may not have much longer to enjoy Mt. A this season.

"If Mother Nature continues to be this friendly to us, we'll see if we can get pretty deep into the month of April. As long as people keep showing up and the snow is good we'll continue to spin those lifts for you," Towle added.

Mt. Ashland Ski Area will be open Monday, April 2nd. Afterwards, it will only be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. You can keep track of the operating schedule here.
