(KSL News) -- Christmas is still one month away, but Santa's already making the rounds in Utah. But today he didn’t use his reindeer to make the trip.
Santa climbed aboard Chopper Five today to visit Utah County.
The helicopter touched down at the University Mall in Orem, much to the delight of anxious children.
Santa Claus: "They're gonna have their lists ready and they're gonna come and ask me what they want for Christmas. I have to try and remember all that stuff."
Santa said he enjoyed the ride on Chopper Five, but still prefers his sleigh and reindeer. Today's visit was part of a special event at the University Mall.
