Santa’s don skis under the floodlights in the Sierra Nevada

LAST UPDATED: 7 Jan, 2016 @ 15:14

Sierra-NevadaDOZENS of festive skiers dressed as Old St. Nick were spotted on the slopes over the Christmas period.

During the night skiing session, which runs every Saturday throughout the season, up to 30 Santas took to the slopes.

Organised by slope managers at Cetursa, Santa’s helpers performed a choreographed ski at the beginner Borreguiles slopes.

The event aimed at children also included skiing workshops run by games mascot the Suly Sierra Nevada and a rock concert.

The CEO of Cetursa Sierra Nevada, María José López, said the event was a resounding success.

“The performance of Santa’s helpers was spectacular, a great way to start the program,” he said.

The mountain tops are still looking a little bare, with the harder red and black runs closed until the first major snowfall of the season.
