Spanning three decades, the Skifest is considered the premiere network televised celebrity ski weekend, as stars from Television, Film and the Olympic Games come to Deer Valley each December for a magical experience and to raise money for a good cause.
The Skifest includes the head-to-head Celebrity Ski Challenge — with teams captained by the U.S. Olympic Ski team greats — plus the entertaining off-the-hill celebrity antics, parties, charity auction, benefit concert and all the Deer Valley "magic."
WaterKeeper Alliance connects, supports, and champions clean-water programs for waterways and their communities worldwide. With nearly 200 local Waterkeeper programs and more to come, the grassroots organization is dedicated to protecting the planet’s water from pollution.
"There is no more important human right than the right to clean water. The law is strong. Pollution is theft. But law enforcement is weak. Citizens must exercise our rights as owners and stewards of the environment. On waterways around the world, Waterkeepers take ownership – patrolling our waterways and protecting our communities."
The success of the event is due in large part to the relationships that have been developed both professionally and personally, and matched only by the quality of the event, its charity, celebrities, athletes, the CBS network and of course Deer Valley Resort.

Of the things that have changed in 35 years, the constant has been staying true to the resort's philosophy.
