Sunday River Will Deck the Slopes with Skiing Santas
Ski resort celebrates 13th annual Santa-themed fundraiser on Sunday, December 2, 2012
Newry, Maine (Winter 2012/2013)—For the 13th year in a row, Sunday River Resort is inviting 250 pre-registered skiers and snowboarders to hit the slopes in full holiday attire to celebrate Santa Sunday on December 2, 2012. This annual event raises money for the Bethel Rotary Club’s Annual Holiday Toy Drive.
“This is a hugely popular event,” Dana Bullen, Resort President for Sunday River, says. “It’s visually stunning to watch all those Santas skiing and snowboarding down the mountain and it puts everyone in the holiday spirit—all for a great cause.”
Registration for this popular event will take place in late November on the resort’s website, www.sundayriver.com.
For the event, Santa Sunday participants will check in with resort elves who will ensure that each person is in the proper holiday attire. From there, Santas board the South Ridge Express chairlift before schussing down the beginner trails of Mixing Bowl and Broadway.
Participants also partake in the annual group photo shoot. For their participation, Santas receive one free lift ticket to use for the rest of the day, in addition to another free lift ticket to use anytime through December 14, 2012.
Santa Sunday participants must arrive to the event wearing all of the following items: one red Santa hat including a white pompom, one red Santa jacket, one pair of red Santa pants, a Santa beard, and a $10 (or more) cash donation for the Bethel Rotary Club's Annual Holiday Toy Drive.
Guests not participating are invited to watch this annual running of the Santas from the South Ridge base area.
