In Grindelwald this Easter, good luck and muscle strength are required on Saturday, 26 March, when the starting signal is heard for the traditional Easter treasure hunt. At the season-ending event "I'm a treasure, get me out of here" , 30 treasure chests with great prizes have been hidden in an area of approximately 80 x 40 metres. The treasure hunt in the snow starts at 11 AM at the Grindelwald-First ski area and lasts until 2:30 PM. The First summit station is the meeting point. The ensuing Season End Party takes place at the Eiger+ Eventplatz in Grindelwald village centre. The festivities with DJ Mike start at 3 PM. Starting at 4:15 PM, the Swiss band Major B ensures a special atmosphere. The awarding of prizes takes place around 5 PM.
A first prize forever
The first prize for the treasure hunters is a Seat Ibiza Entry. For the first time in the event's history, the winner can keep the car forever. Previously, the prize had to be returned after one year. The Seat Ibiza Entry is sponsored by AMAG Thun and First Railway. Other prizes with a total value of CHF 30,000 are hidden in the treasure chests. If you're lucky, you could get your hands on 2 x season passes for the Jungfrau Ski Region, an iPad, a pair of Stöckli skis, or 2 x tickets for the SnowpenAir 2016 concert in February, which is already sold out. In the ensuing raffle, all participants who did not find a treasure chest will have another chance to win a prize. In addition, the participant with the nicest and funniest costume will receive a special price. A jury consisting of organisers and sponsors will do the judging.
