Hundreds of skiers and boarders in Santa outfits on the slopes of Sunday River ski resort in Maine, USA, this weekend created quite a sight on the slopes.

They were taking part in the ski area’s 21st Annual Santa Sunday which raises money for a local  non-profit organization.

232 skiers and snowboarders dressed as Santa and schussed down the slopes of the resort’s Broadway trail, ringing sleigh bells all the way.

Each pre-registered Santa made at least a $20 donation to River Fund Maine and wore a red Santa hat with white pompom, a red Santa jacket, red Santa pants, and a Santa beard to participate in the event.

For their generosity and holiday spirit, Sunday River provided lift tickets for the day for each Santa, plus another ticket to come back again to ski before December 24, 2021.

River Fund Maine aims to create a bright economic future for the community by investing in the education of the area’s youth and by harnessing the recreational assets of the region. Since its creation in 2018, the River Fund Maine has awarded two college scholarships of $20,000 per year for up to four years, provided design thinking workshops to local students, and more.
