It was fun AND competitive

This afternoon on your local CBS station, the CBS Sports Spectacular: Deer Valley Celebrity Skifest is showing. We attended the event as guests of Deer Valley to ride, hang out with the celebs, watch a Lady Antebellum concert, and take some photos. Like these….

The annual Celebrity Skifest pairs former Olympic ski legends with television and film celebrities for an exciting weekend of skiing, live music and fundraising for Waterkeeper Alliance, the fastest-growing grassroots environmental movement in the world. Waterkeeper defends communities against anyone who threatens their right to clean water—from law-breaking polluters to unresponsive government agencies. So it was celebs in Park City and a couple of cyclists (us), having fun and protecting water. A pleasure to attend, and as I posted this week, the snow conditions weren’t great for skiing, but were for snow biking!

Our host hotel was Goldener Hirsch where we enjoyed apres ski with yodelers and before that, a tasting with High West Distillery, and dinner at Mariposa.
