My Celebrity Skifest Recap


You already know so many of my favorite edible indulgences. Here’s what some of the competitors at the Celebrity Ski Challenge had to say:

What is your favorite Deer Valley treat?

The turkey chili…that’s an easy question – Joey Pantoliano 

We had some pizza here that was pretty fantastic. And I love the cookies here–I had some dipped in chocolate fondue. I mean, I’m working out, right?–Cheryl Hines

Oh, it’s the bacon at silver lake lodge. There is little out there that is worse for us to eat, but the bacon has like a honey pepper flavor and they cook it to perfection so it’s irresistible — it’s ridiculous. –Ian Ziering


Petite moms, take note. There are great deals to be had on gear for us in the kids department. I learned this the easy way, scoring a sweet deal from the clearance rack on last year’s junior gear at our local children’s gear outfitter (it’s called Kindersport and they have a retail location at Snow Park Lodge), just last week.

I felt superstylin” in my new chocolate brown jacket and chocolate brown pants with a black, white and green glen plaid. I also felt empowered to use words like superstylin’. For reals.

So imagine my delight when I bumped into an adorable nine year-old girl, whose mother glanced at my outfit, pointed across the way and said, Great minds think alike. Yup, we were sporting the same ski pants! I was at the spectator area in front of the VIP tent at the celebrity ski challenge, bumping into someone from college, hanging out steps away from ski legend Stein Ericksen, and taking Olympic gears Phil and Steve Mahre by surprised when I addressed them by the title they hold In our house: Mary Ellen’s Uncles (Mary Ellen was our baby-sitter for years, and is practically a member of our family. Which means, of course, that we are practically related to her uncles, right?)

Anyway, Adorable Pants Twin turned out to be Tu, daughter of actor and Celebrity Ski Challenge competitor Rob Morrow. Naturally, we got a photo together, ensuring that my already overinflated sense of my own youth would be, well, immortalized.

As it turned out, Tu and I had lots more in common than our BRILLIANT fashion sense. We share a love for the hot cocoa at Deer Valley, and for skiing with our dads in order  to show them up. “I love to ski at Deer Valley with my dad,” Tu said. “He usually starts out ahead of me, and then I catch up to him, pass him and call him a slowpoke!”

When I was Tu’s age, I once skied down to where my dad had just set up a Yard Sale, and upon ascertaining he was ok, ditched him in order to beat him to the bottom. He’ll be here in a few weeks to initiate what I’m sure will be a healthy dose of payback.
