150 Santas Ski Down Sunday River Slope For Charity [VIDEO]
Sing along everyone! ‘Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down South Ridge Express.’
Sunday was the 16th annual Santa Sunday at Sunday River where 150 people dressed as Santa Claus skied down the snow covered slope of South Ridge Express at the same time.
$3014 was raised for the Sunday River Community Fund which helps support charitable organizations in the Sunday River area, like Bryant Pond Learning Center, the Androscoggin River Watershed Council, and the Bethel Library Association.
For at least a $15 donation to the fund, participants had to wear a Santa suit when skiing down the mountain. Hat, beard, coat, belt, and pants. Every Santa also got a free lift ticket to ski that morning and a free ticket for use in the next few weeks.
