Windham Mountain invited Santa Claus to ski for charity on Sunday, Dec. 12, and 300 Santas answered the call. Hundreds of skiers wearing red and white received a free lift ticket and paid $20 apiece.

The fees--over $6,000 in all--were donated to the Windham Community Food Pantry, along with a matching $2,000 donation from the ski center, according to a video released by Windham Mountain.
