More than 100 skiers and snowboarders dressed in full Santa Claus outfits descended on Mountain High this weekend for its second annual Santa Sunday. 106 festive riders participated in this holiday event to raise money for Protect Our Winters (POW), a nonprofit charity supporting the climate advocacy group for the snow sports community.
The event began at 9:00 a.m. with a group ride at Mountain High’s West Resort. All participants made a $20 minimum donation to POW and received a complimentary lift ticket for the day (regularly $74). To qualify, skiers and snowboarders had to wear a complete Santa suit with hat, beard, coat, belt and pants.
If you missed out on this year’s event, Mountain High intends to host Santa Sunday again next year.
