This weekend, Canyons Resort hosted an incredible event. 

An amazing group of professional skiers, Olympic athletes, celebrities, and adorable junior skiers got together to raise awareness and funds for Operation Smile.

Thanks to Park City Television here is an inside look:

My fingers are crossed that this becomes a growing annual event for a great cause. It was so fun to see and be a small part of, and everyone had a wonderful time. 

I have to tell you I love celebrities coming out to ski and see our awesome mountains. It was rad to watch Tony Hawk, Kate Walsh, Billy Bush, Scott Wolf, Cory Monteith and others enjoy the warm sunny Saturday on the race course. Even more thrilling was seeing snow come down on Sunday and see updates from Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Harry Shum Jr. taking to the slopes for lessons!
