In the Nick of Time

A COU­PLE HUN­DRED SCHUSSING SAN­TAS AND A PAR­TRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE.

SKI - - FRONT SIDE - By Sa­man­tha Ber­man

Ski­ing San­tas may be a dime a dozen in the month of De­cem­ber, but no­body does it like Sun­day River, Maine. On Dec. 3, the re­sort opens up the slopes to a cou­ple hun­dred San­tas dressed head to toe in red and white. They gather mid-morn­ing for a photo shoot (the im­age above is from the 2016 event), then are free to ski the re­main­der of the day. Prospec­tive San­tas are re­quired to wear the full kit: Santa hat, jacket, pants, and beard. Pot belly is op­tional. They’re also re­quired to spread good cheer in the form of a do­na­tion to a lo­cal char­ity. ’Tis the sea­son, after all.
