Santa was spotted on the slopes at Brighton Ski Resort Tuesday.

Actually, there were dozens of people dressed as old Saint Nick because anyone dressed as Santa skied free on Christmas Eve.

The Harris family skis every Christmas Eve. They say nothing feels more like Christmas than flying down the side of a mountain in a Santa suit.

“We thought why not take advantage of a free ski day," said Christy Harris. “We went out and bought Santa suits yesterday and found whatever we could in the closet and headed up here. We are going to make this a holiday tradition”

The skiing Santa clauses say it’s a great way to spread a little Christmas cheer.

“My dad every year dresses like Santa, this year my mom surprised him and decided we would all come dressed as Santa, said Trenton Harris. “And the whole way down it's fun screaming Merry Christmas AND Feliz Navidad to all the people.”
