The annual tradition has been happening for at least 57 years, according to general manager Jim Bartlett.
About 50 skiiers and snowboarders took part in the parade, which is made possible by each person carrying road flares to light up the path as they weave down the hill.
The tradition began as a fun way for people staying at the resort to celebrate the new year, and kept on happening even after the resort got rid of its lodging.
