On November 28 it's Santa Claus time again. The ClauWau event marks the winter opening of the Samnaun ski resort and Santa Clauses from all over the world travel here to take part and celebrate together. In the middle of the ski area, at Alp Trida, Santa teams show their skills in various disciplines, competing against each other to see which team will have the honour of becoming the Santa Claus World Champions. In the evening we celebrate the opening of the winter season at an open-air concert in the middle of Samnaun village.
