180 Skiing and Snowboarding Santas Spread Cheer on the Slopes of Sunday River Resort

Skiing Saint Nicks raise $2,845 during 17th annual Santa Sunday

December 4, 2016

Newry, ME (December 4, 2014)—Sunday River Resort in Maine got into the holiday spirit with its 17th Annual Santa Sunday today. In the name of charity, 180 skiing and snowboarding Santas rode the Barker Mountain Express to join together in an epic group schuss down the resort's Ecstasy and Sunday Punch trails, raising some cheer and $2,845 for the Sunday River Community Fund (SRCF).

To participate in Sunday River's annual Santa Sunday, guests are required to pre-register the week prior to the event and are asked to donate a minimum of $15 to the SRCF. Once a Santa has successfully registered and made his/her donation, that Santa must wear a Santa suit, complete with hat, beard, coat, belt, and pants.

In addition to being able to give back, participants received a free lift ticket to use for the morning, as well as another lift ticket to use anytime before December 16, 2016.
