It’s Christmas and I haven’t even done a post about the jolly man himself. I should be ashamed of myself. So, before the big day comes and goes, here are seven ways resorts are making the most of the holiday season by bringing Santa to town for a quick visit.

Snowshoe, West Virginia
“Where’s Santa? Find him on the mountain for a treat!”

Sunday River, Maine
“To participate, the skiers have to show up in a Santa outfit and donate $10 or more to the toy drive. Participants get to ski free for the day while also receiving another lift ticket good through Dec. 16.”

Grant Targhee, Wyoming
“It’s a game of ‘Where’s Santa?’ Find Targhee’s Santa and collect Candy Canes. Join the fun and wear your own Santa suit .”

Jackson Hole, Wyoming
“Pro skiers and shredding groms turn into Santa and his elves for a great video.”

Park City, Utah
“5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Christmas carols and holiday cheer, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Enjoy free hot chocolate and cookies, 6:15 p.m. Watch as Rudolph drives Santa’s sleigh down the Town Lift, 6:30 p.m. Have your picture taken with Santa”

Attitash, New Hampshire
“Santa arrived at Attitash today via the Mountain Coaster and then had the chance to meet up with one of our snowmakers to fire up a fan gun at the base of Attitash.”

Whistler/Blackcomb, British Columbia
“First 75 people to show up dress as Santa get a free lift ticket.”

About Gregg & SlopeFillers
I've had more first-time visitors lately, so adding a quick "about" section. I started SlopeFillers in 2010 with the simple goal of sharing great resort marketing strategies. Today I run marketing for resort ecommerce and CRM provider Inntopia, my home mountain is the lovely Nordic Valley, and my favorite marketing campaign remains the Ski Utah TV show that sold me on skiing as a kid in the 90s.
