The 24th annual DEER VALLEY® CELEBRITY SKIFEST, produced by JUMA Entertainment, featuring a bevy of stars, Olympians and a special musical performance by multi-platinum recording artist Dierks Bentley airs as a one-hour special on CBS Sports this Sunday, December 13, 2015, at 5PM Eastern, adjacent to NFL Football.
The star-studded annual event pairs U.S. Olympic ski legends with celebrities for a weekend of skiing, live music and fundraising for Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Waterkeeper Alliance, an organization devoted to protecting fresh water resources around the world.
Celebrity attendees included Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Dierks Bentley, Amy Brenneman, Dylan Bruno, Nicole Curtis, Mark Feuerstein, Hill Harper, Rachael Harris, Taylor Hicks, Cheryl Hines, hypnotist Chris Jones, Chad Lowe, Diane Neal, Perrey Reeves, J.B. Smoove, and more. The stars were joined by U.S. Olympic medalists Phil and Steve Mahre, Tommy Moe, and Heidi Voelker.
Sponsors include Deer Valley Resort, Montage Deer Valley, John Paul Mitchell Systems, Seiko, Balsam Hill, and Papa John’s.
“This annual event has become the gold standard for entertaining environmental awareness,” said Horowitz. “For more than two decades, the Celebrity Ski Fest has opened the season at the #1 ski resort in America with a gala and ski race for the benefit of an incredible organization, and with the support of generous sponsors. This year, with a private Dierks Bentley show in the lobby of The Montage, and a star-studded line-up of celebrity ski racers, the show is going to be extra special.”
“The Skifest is key to our fundraising efforts, providing vital funds needed to continue our mission of protecting the world’s water supply,” said Robert F. Kennedy Jr., President of Waterkeeper Alliance. “With the ever-increasing importance of clean water worldwide, the Waterkeeper Alliance is ever appreciative of the support that the attendees, Olympians, and JUMA Entertainment bring to the DEER VALLEY CELEBRITY SKIFEST.”
