Celebrity Ski Fest at Deer Valley Opening

by Powderhound Cat December 7 2011 2 Comments


Of any celebrity you can think of, who would you want to take a lift ride and make some turns with?

It could be possible opening day at Deer Valley!

Last year I was kicking myself for not getting better footage of one of the most fun events I experienced. This year, I got out early and was able to see all the set up that goes into setting up the event perfect. Deer Valley does an awesome job.

The resort opened this weekend to beautiful clear skies and fast snow, the perfect setting for the Celebrity Ski Fest.


It is so much more than people watching, it is an event to benefit the Waterkeepers Alliance. I hope some of you were able to see it air on CBS national TV. 

My favorite part (besides that photograph with TO) is the good spirits of beginner skiers supporting the foundation. I can't lie, I also love seeing a good fall!

Here is a link to some additional photos I took.

Also, be sure and head up to Deer Valley to meet Santa and watch the Torchlight Parade, another beautiful event. For more information click here.
