Rules & Regulations
The St. Patrick’s Day Hunt will begin at 10 AM and Sunrise Park Resort will redeem Four Leaf Clovers brought in until 4 PM. Each Four Leaf Clover will be made in-house with a number corresponding to an envelope with the same number. Inside each envelope will be a Gift Certificate for a prize listed on the St. Patrick’s Day Four Leaf Clover Hunt Prize List. The Prize List will contain; the number of the Four Leaf Clover, the number of the Gift Certificate/Envelope, what the Gift Certificate is for, how long it is valid, and the winner’s name & address.
Each clover will be numbered with a Gift Certificate Number – this reduces the chances of Guest claiming they deserve a “better” prize because of the number they found. The clovers will not be numbered 1 (one) through 17 (seventeen), but there will be 17 (seventeen) total.
Participants of all ages/skill levels will search (all three?) mountains for clovers. Sunrise Personnel will place the Four Leaf Clovers, and we will have a corresponding map to show where each clover is placed (this is where having each clover numbered will come in hand). One (1) Prize per guest. Each Clover must be redeemed on the 17th of March by 4 PM. Guests MUST bring the clovers to GUEST SERVICES at the Sunrise Peak Base Area Day Lodge. Participants must have mountain access by Lift Ticket, Season Pass, or College Pass. Each Gift Certificate is NON-TRANSFERABLE and has NO CASH VALUE. Each Lift Ticket Gift Certificate does NOT include Zipline Tour Access unless otherwise stated.
Hon-Dah Resort Casino and Conference Center will provide a 2 Day Fishing Package in sponsorship of the event. The Pot of Gold is a Family Fun Package including Lifts, Lodging, Rental, and Ski School Group Lessons.
