NEWRY, Maine (AP) - Nearly 300 skiers and snowboarders decked out in red and white are preparing to hit the slopes at Sunday River.
This weekend, the ski resort in western Maine is hosting its annual skiing Santas event. Spokeswoman Darcy Morse says 292 of them have pre-registered for Sunday's event.
The 13th annual Santa Sunday raises money for the Bethel Rotary Club's annual holiday toy drive.
Those who registered 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. 14.
