Santa Ski Sunday at Mountain High (Santas Ski Free!)

Sun Dec 18, 2022
8:00am PT
6 and up
Free with $20 donation and Santa suit

This annual event at Mountain High is a win-win: Be one of the first 100 skiers or snowboarders to arrive at the slope dressed as Santa Claus, and your lift ticket is (almost)free. Or just turn up in your usual winter gear and spend a day skiing with 100 Santas!

The holiday event serves as a fundraiser; this year's charity is Christmas Cheer All Year. To take part in Santa Sunday, guests are asked to pre-register for the event and donate a minimum of $20 to help children in need (so in fact the free lift ticket is really $20, but compared to $109 normally, that's pretty close to free). Receipts for online donations must be presented at registration to claim a day ticket. And the Santa suit must include hat, beard, coat, belt, and pants.

This year, the resort is adding another promotion for those not in Santa gear: post a selfie with one or more of the skiing Santas by Christmas Eve to win a prize package.

Participants must pick up their tickets, sign liability forms, and be at the Snowflake chairlift before 9am to participate in a Santa Sunday group ride. An 8am arrival is recommended. Photo ID is required.


8am - Pick up tickets in the Big Pines Base Lodge 
9am - Group Santa photo at bottom of Snowflake chairlift 
10am - Santa Run meets at the bottom of Blue Ridge Express
