In the Nick of Time
A COUPLE HUNDRED SCHUSSING SANTAS AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE.
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.
