Santa Ski Sunday at Mountain High (Santas Ski Free!)
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 for the climate change advocacy group, Protect Our Winters (POW). To take part in Santa Sunday, guests are asked to pre-register for the event and donate a minimum of $20 to Protect Our Winters, so in fact the free lift ticket is really $20, but compared to $79 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.
Participants must pick up their tickets, sign liability forms, and be at the Snowflake chairlift at 9:15am to participate in a Santa Sunday group ride. An 8am arrival is recommended. Photo ID is required.
