Beacon & Eggs Beacon Search Contest
Combine an Easter egg hunt with an avalanche beacon search practice session, and the result is the Beacon & Eggs beacon search contest at Alpine Meadows Ski Resort. Avalanche beacons will be buried in a one-acre area in at Alpine Meadows and competitors will proceed to the buried backpack using their beacons in “search” mode. Competitors work individually or in teams (up to four people), sharing the prizes for recovering the beacon. Competitors redeem a found beacon for incredible prizes. The individual winner of the Alpine Meadows Beacon & Eggs contest will win a 2014 Bronze Tahoe Super Pass.
Free registration is at the Beacon & Eggs tent near the top of Subway Chair Lift (next to the base lodge) from 9am to 11am. The Le Mans-style start is at noon near the top of the Subway beginner lift, adjacent to the base lodge. Competitors must provide their own beacons, probes, and shovels.
