Help me ID this X-mas flick

Detila are sketchy, but this is what I remember. I used to watch this a lot as a kid, but for the life of me I can't remember what it's called.

A group of kids go on a trip (for school?) to the North Pole to visit Santa. While there Mrs. Claus (I think) and/or one/some of the kids are kidnapped by an evil guy living in the woods near Santa's shop. I think it might have been a sister of one of the brothers that was taken.

And that's it. I don't recall much more than that, but the beauty of this forum is some people only need a scrap to get it right. Any help is, of course, greatly appreciated.
