Continuing the spring celebration known as Spring Grüv at Canyons, we hosted a celebrity ski race on Saturday to help raise funds for Operation Smile. A ton of celebrities came to race against Olympians for a weekend in Park City. The weather held up and we were able to give them a great venue, even with enough snow (just barley!).
The list of celebrities included Kate Walsh (Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Lisa Kudrow (Friends), Scott Wolf (Party of 5), Billy Bush (Access Hollywood), Harry Shum Jr. (Glee), and my FAVORITE.. Whitney Cummings. Chris and I fell in love with her watching the NBC show Whitney – definitely watch it, if you haven’t!
Once I heard Whitney was coming, I immediately volunteered to help at the race. I got the job of keeping score, which was perfect. Notice who’s sitting on the ground right by me? Yep, that’s Whitney in the brown sweater.
Here’s Kate Walsh skiing. What a trooper! The spring conditions were tough, really unpredictable snow for sure.
Check this out. A photo of Whitney and I. I walked up to her and complimented her work and then asked for a photo. I’m pretty sure we’re soon going to be best friends, (we sure look like it here!) Check out her cool nail polish.
We got some tickets to the VIP post-race party at like the biggest house at Canyons. My co-worker Caitlin and I went the party and were pretty much one of the few non VIP people there. Everyone else seemed to be an Olympian, celebrity or with Operation Smile.
It was a pretty small party (only like 60-70 people) so I couldn’t be the photographer you all wanted me to be. I would have been like the only weirdo snapping photos all the time. This is the living room, they had a presentation on Operation Smile going on, what a neat cause.
Whitney put this up on Twitter. I “borrowed” it. I was at this party and she took this photo there. Love that sweater! I wore a purple top and skinny jeans too- great minds think alike!
We went on a secret tour of the house – there was pretty much old snowboards on every hallway wall, pretty neat.
The garage under the house can fit 22 cars. Not messing around.
