Santas hit the slopes at Mountain High for good cause
About 300 skiers dressed as Santa hit the slopes at the Mountain High resort in Wrightwood to raise money for toys for underprivileged children.

WRIGHTWOOD, Calif. (KABC) -- Mountain High ski resort looked a bit like the North Pole Sunday.

It was Santa Sunday. Nearly 300 people dressed in red coats and white beards to hit the slopes. And at least one was spotted with a Grinch outfit under the Santa coat.

The event had a purpose beyond holiday fund. It was an annual for the nonprofit Christmas Cheer All Year, which serves underprivileged youth. More than $21,000 was raised.

Anyone who wore a costume and made a donation received a free adult lift ticket.
