This Sunday, December 9, is the third annual Santas Ski for Free Day, at Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington. Guests, who dress as Mr. or Mrs. Claus, participate in a group photo and arrive by 10 am, receive a free lift ticket to ski or ride the Olympic mountain. Hundreds of skiers and snowboarders are expected to participate.
Those who do not have a jolly red suit can donate a new toy (valued over $10) or a gently used winter coat and receive 50% off a lift ticket for the day. All donations will be collected by volunteers from the Boy Scouts of America and the Saranac Lake Key Club.
Whiteface Mountain is located at 5021 Route 86, Wilmington.
