Ben Silverman at the Deer Valley Celebrity Skifest

Mr. Silverman—looking startlingly upbeat, considering—posed with slalom ace Steve Mahre, left, and event host Bob Horowitz, president of Juma Entertainment, right, at the 17th annual Deer Valley (Utah) Celebrity Skifest presented by Paul Mitchell. Highlights of the fest, which raised $500,000 via live auction for Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Waterkeeper Alliance, an organization that fights water pollution, are scheduled to air Sunday on—you guessed it, CBS.
