Here comes Santa Clause

Please join us in kicking off the Holiday season with Santa Sunday. Sunday, December 11, 2022.

To get good views of the Santas, spectators should arrive at South Ridge at 11:00 a.m.

If you want to join in on the fun, here’s everything you need to know.

*Registration is open*

250+ pre-registered Santas arrive at the resort in full attire, beard included. Not only is this event photo-worthy and has been featured on the likes of the Travel Channel, but it’s also for a good cause. At the last event, the in-hand donations made by participating Santas helped raise over $3,000 for the River Fund, a non-profit organization that supports youth education and recreation in the Bethel area.

All pre-registered participants can check-in on Sunday, December 11th between 7:30-10:30AM at South Ridge Lodge before proceeding slope side for the photo shoot. Participants must fill out their waiver and arrive at check-in wearing all of the following items: a red Santa hat with white pompom, a red Santa jacket, red Santa pants, a Santa beard. 

The lift ticket you receive at check-in is only valid until 11AM. To continue skiing or riding for the day, you will need to show up at the scheduled photo shoot at 11AM, slopeside at South Ridge dressed in your Santa attire. After the photo shoot, we will all go up South Ridge Express then ski down Broadway (green trail). After the parade down Broadway, we will validate your ticket to ski/ride for the rest of the day. Santas who participate in the 11AM photo shoot will also receive an additional lift ticket valid through mid-December.
