PARK CITY, Utah — On Saturday Dec. 2, Deer Valley Resort celebrated not only its opening day, but its 6th annual Shred for Red event benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The slopes were filled with skiers dressed in their race bibs, red garland, and smiles. Opening day wasn’t just stoke for the ski season, but it was the stoked for the feet of snow Deer Valley was receiving during the first significant snowfall of the 2023-24 winter season.
