  • After fears that Dress Like Santa Day was going on hiatus, the long-running event was reinstated at Whistler Blackcomb for Friday, Dec. 20.

After fears that one of Whistler Blackcomb’s long-running festive traditions would be going the way of the Yule log, the company has reinstated Dress Like Santa Day.

Inviting skiers and riders to don the red and white every holiday season, Dress Like Santa Day was initially put on hiatus to be “rethought and maybe return as a more robust event,” said Vail Resorts West Coast communications director Marc Riddell. After feedback from the public, that decision was reversed.

This year’s Dress Like Santa Day is now scheduled for Friday, Dec. 20. The first 100 people in line dressed as Santa or Mrs. Claus will receive free lift access. Tickets will start being handed out at 7 a.m. at the base of the Whistler Village Gondola.
