Santa paused in his preparations for Christmas Day to once again bring a bag full of goodies to waiting fans at Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area.
His sleigh and reindeer parked at the top of the Flying Dutchman, Santa followed a parade of torch-carrying skiers to the chalet where a crowd of several hundred believers lined the decks and slope.
Eager children clamoured for a treat, while others just wanted a photo with the big guy, proof that not only was he there, but that he’s also a skilled skier. (There being no mountains at the North Pole, his skiing prowess has been questioned by some. No more.)
Just as quickly as he’d arrived, Santa skied off to resume delivery of presents around the world. Don’t worry, he’ll be back with yours as soon as you’re soundly asleep in your bed.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
