SUIT UP! It’s time for the annual Crested Butte Santa Ski and Crawl at Crested Butte Mountain Resort. In this video, from last year’s event, you will catch a glimpse of the many Santas that took to the mountain in 2014. Merrier than most, the 765 St. Nicks that skied last year set the World Record for the Most Skiing Santas. As you can tell, participants enjoyed their day as they combined off-the-charts holiday spirit with serious shredding.
This Saturday, December 12th, area residents and holiday visitors have the chance to be a part of history as we attempt to beat our own word record and fill the mountain with the jolliest of snow sports enthusiasts. This family friendly event and Crested Butte tradition is something that you don’t want to miss. Bring your own suit, or purchase one and join in on the fun. Crested Butte Mountain Resort is also offering $23 lift tickets to participants in qualifying Santa attire, so before you head down the chimney this year, be sure to show up on the slopes and help us break the world record again.
Tickets to the apes ski crawl are still available for those who want to shimmy down to Crested Butte before embarking on a big night of delivering gifts around the world.
