Mountain High’s 7th Annual Santa Sunday Returns 12/18

There’s only one thing better than fresh snow to put you in the holiday spirit and that’s a visit from Santa Clause…or in this case hundreds of Santa Clauses. Mountain High’s Santa Sunday returns this Sunday, December 18th, for its 7th annual Santa celebration. Watch as hundreds of Santas in all shapes and sizes ski down the slopes of Mountain High in the name charity.

Any Santa who visits Mountain High on Sunday, December 18th, and makes a minimum $25 donation to Christmas Cheer All Year will receive a FREE Adult Lift Ticket worth $129. This event is open to men and women, skiers and snowboarders, Grinchs and Santas alike. 

Christmas Cheer All Year is a non-profit organization that originally served underprivileged youth at Christmas but now spreads the joy of the holiday season to people in need all year. To make a donation and help someone in your community, please click here.
