Pole Position 

Santa's interests are varied

You're plenty familiar with the cookies-and-milk obsession and the penchant for flying vehicles, but there are still some things you don't know about Santa Claus. Were you aware that he's a cruciverbalist who competes in crossword-puzzle tournaments during the off-season? Or did you know that Claus is a film buff and a community-theater actor? And what about his love of snow sports — were you aware that he can carve mountains with the best of 'em? To see his skiing skills for yourself, head out to Hidden Valley (17409 Hidden Valley Drive, Wildwood) for the Ski with Santa Special Midnight Session. The night runs from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m., and a lift ticket will cost you $26 to $41 (a lift ticket with ski or board rental will run you $28 to $69). Call 636-938-6999 for a snow report, and visit to learn more.
