Vail Mountain will host its annual interdenominational sunrise service on Easter Sunday, April 21, at 6 a.m. inside at Eagle’s Nest. The Eagle Bahn Gondola will open to the public at 5:30 a.m. to transport guests from Lionshead.

Complimentary baked goods and beverages will be provided for attendees. In addition, there will be two afternoon Easter services outside at Eagle’s Nest, which are scheduled for 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. at Simonton Deck (also known as the Holy Cross observation deck).

For those planning to attend the Easter sunrise service, the town of Vail will be offering free parking for vehicles that enter the Lionshead parking structure after 5 a.m. and depart prior to 10 a.m. Upon departure, attendees should inform the parking booth attendants they were at the service.

For the sunrise service, the gondola ride is complimentary and guests are not permitted to bring skis or snowboards. Following the service, guests will be asked to download the gondola. Guests will need a lift ticket or scenic ride ticket for the 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. service.
