NEWRY, Maine (AP) — Hundreds of skiing Santas were dashing through the snow at a Maine ski resort over the weekend.

Sunday River says 250 skiers and snowboarders signed up for its 11th annual Santa Sunday event, with registration filling up in 12 minutes.

For the event, skiers got a free lift ticket if they came dressed as Santa and donated $10 or more to the Bethel Rotary Club's annual drive to provide gifts for the area's children in need. They also got an additional lift ticket valid through Dec. 18.
