Whistler Blackcomb Annual Dress Like Santa Day
Returns Saturday, December 16

First 100 Skiers/Snowboarders dressed like Santa or Mrs. Claus ski FREE
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus right down… Upper Whisky Jack. If your red suit has dusted a few chimneys, Whistler Blackcomb wants to treat you to a free ski.
Whistler Blackcomb’s annual Dress Like Santa Day returns just in time for the holidays. This Saturday, December 16, skiers and riders of all ages are invited to dress like Santa or Mrs. Claus and bring Christmas cheer to the slopes.
“This is our way of saying thank you to Santa and Mrs. Claus for the epic journey they make each Christmas Eve, and to make sure they get to carve a few turns for themselves this year,” says Pete Sonntag, Whistler Blackcomb Chief Operating Officer.
A free lift ticket will be awarded to the first 100 people to arrive at the Garibaldi Lift Company (GLC), at the base of Whistler Mountain, in full Santa or Mrs. Claus attire. No registration is necessary for this event. Lift tickets will be given out on a first come, first serve basis with the lineup starting at 7 a.m.
All skiers and riders dressed as Santa and Mrs. Claus will upload the Whistler Village Gondola at 8:00 a.m., then ski or ride to the bottom of Emerald Express for a group photo and giveaways.
