A Maine ski resort hosted more than 300 skiing and snowboarding Santas

NICK EICHER, HOST: A couple weeks ago, the Sunday River ski resort in Maine had to create man-made snow for the more than 300 skiers who showed up. But it didn’t dampen the Christmas spirit.

Winter sport enthusiasts of all ages were dressed from helmet to boot in red and white fur.

Some skied, others snowboarded all dressed as Santa part of an annual charity fundraiser. Bob Waddell lives in neighboring New Hampshire. This was his third time.

The event raised more than $7500 for the food pantry, though with all those Santas in town, I wonder if the local stores had to put their cookies and milk behind lock and key--so there’d be enough for this weekend, you know, for the real Santa.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
