Park City, Utah (December 7, 2012) – Park City Mountain Resort celebrates the holiday season in spectacular fashion when Santa comes down the Town Lift  on Saturday, December 15 and leads the Resort’s Torchlight Parade on Christmas Eve. Both events are free and open to the public.

On Saturday, December 15, Santa and his reindeer descend from the sky above Park City’s historic Main Street via the Resort’s Town Lift. Festivities kick off at 5:30 p.m. with free hot chocolate and cookies on the Town Lift Plaza. After landing at Town Lift Plaza, Santa will take photos and field gift requests from young and old who have made his “Nice” list.

On Christmas Eve, Santa returns to marshal the Resort’s 49th Annual Torchlight Parade, a tradition as old as the Resort itself. Santa and the Resort’s ski and snowboard instructors illuminate PayDay run in a dazzling procession of lights, with free hot chocolate and cookies served in the Resort Plaza beginning at 5:30 p.m. After the torchlight parade, Santa will visit with guests before taking to the skies for his rounds. Resort guests should also keep an eye out for Santa skiing around the Resort throughout the day on Christmas Eve.

Park City Mountain Resort also begins night operations on December 25, with night skiing and riding available at PayDay lift and run, First Time lift and run and 3 Kings lift and terrain park. Night skiing and riding will be offered until 9 p.m. seven days a week until March 31, 2013.
