18th Annual Santa Sunday - Sunday River

December 3, 2017 

Registration begins Monday, December 27th at noon!   

Celebrate the arrival of winter and the upcoming holiday season all while raising money for a good cause with Sunday River's very own Santa Sunday.

For this festive event, 250 pre-registered Santas arrive to the resort in full attire and with a donation in hand, in order to schuss down the lower slopes of Sunday River. 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 Sunday River Community Fund.

To register for the 18th Annual Santa Sunday, check back on Monday, November 27. We'll open up registration at noon on the dot, and this event typically fills up within minutes. If you make the cut, you'll receive a confirmation email from  us!
