BIG WHITE – If you were one of the first 30 people to show up at the Big White Ski Resort Sunday dressed as Santa Claus, you got to ski for free.

The annual promotion added a very festive feel to the slopes at the resort and the freshly falling snow didn’t hurt.

The resort received 20 centimetres of new snow overnight Saturday.

The mountain’s mascots Loose Moose and Lucy Moose were front in centre when the cameras came out.
