Whiteface Santas – 2017 from Peter Hines on Vimeo.
It’s getting whiter out there but with lots of red showing up early in the season.
The above video was shot by my friend Peter Hines at Whiteface over the weekend.
Last weekend nearly 200 Santa Clauses took over Whiteface Sunday morning for a holiday tradition. The event is meant to draw skiers to the slopes early in the season.
I have attended numerous Santa days at Windham and Sunday River in the past and the atmosphere is always exciting and great fun to participate or just watch all the Santa’s struggling to ski in the baggy Santa outfits.
