Santa Sunday

Celebrate the arrival of winter and the upcoming holiday season with more than 250 Santas cruising down to South Ridge. All money raised goes towards the River Fund. Santas must be in full Santa-attire. 

This signature Sunday River event kicks off the holiday season in style. Registration for 2018 is now closed.

How does it work? 250 pre-registered Santas arrive at the resort in full attire and with a $20 donation in hand. Not only is this event photo-worthy and has been featured on the likes of the Travel Channel, but it's for a good cause too. Last year, the in-hand donations made by participating Santas helped raise over $3,000 for the River Fund, formally known as the Sunday River Community Fund.

All pre-registered participants can check-in on Sunday, December 2, between 7:30-10:30AM at Discovery Center next to the South Ridge Lodge. Santas who participate in the 11AM photo shoot will receive an additional lift ticket valid through December 14, 2018. The photo shoot will take place slopeside at South Ridge and will last approximately 45 minutes. Pre-registered participants must 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, and a $20 (or more) donation to the River Fund.  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. At the conclusion of the photo shoot, a ticket valid through December 3-14, 2018, will be issued. 

Spectators should also get to South Ridge by 11AM to get a good vantage point of the Santas.
