Hundreds of skiers and snowboarders donned Santa costumes and took over Sunday River ski resort in Maine on Sunday, the AP reports.

The resort offered two free lift tickets to the first 250 people to pre-register and promise to wear the following items: “one red Santa hat including a white pompom, one red Santa jacket, one pair of red Santa pants, a Santa beard, and a $10 (or more) cash donation for the Bethel Rotary Club's annual drive to provide gifts for the area's needy children.”

The eleventh annual “Santa Sunday” event sold out in eight minutes. Click here to see photos of the Santas swarming the resort.
