Some took the train. Some came by skis or camped out for days. And many walked with their families the 8-10 kilometers from Oslo up the mountainside to Holmenkollen. They wore knickers and backpacks, with all of them carrying Norwegian flags. And all brought with them the culture of a nation truly built on the outdoors as a way of life. It was Sunday at Holmenkollen. And it dwarfed our Super Bowl.
It was a banner year for Santas at The Canyons’ annual Santa Skis Free Day Dec. 16. After a somewhat slow 2006 event, 30 Santas turned out to make a few turns, pose for pictures and freak out people all over the mountain. Fun was had by all.
Yes, it’s that time again. Saturday (Dec. 15) is the traditional Santa Skis Free Day at The Canyons. Show up at the base area ticket booth between 8:00-9:00 a.m. Saturday in a FULL Santa suit, and you’ll get a free ticket. It’s always fun to get the Santa’s together.
