Hollywood Stars to Play on Sunshine's Slopes

BANFF, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 30, 2013) - Batman's Michael Keaton, James Bond's Pierce Brosnan, Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden and Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito are the latest Hollywood stars planning to descend on Sunshine Village for The Fairmont Banff Springs Sports Invitational, January 31 - February 3.

These new stars will join host Robert F. Kennedy, Susan Sarandon, Alan Thicke, Fran Drescher, Camryn Manheim and Lyle Lovett and his Large Band. Additional names of celebrities expected to be in attendance include Alicia Silverstone, Matthew Gray Gubler, Lorenzo Lamas, Cheech Marin, Mimi Rogers, Melissa Rivers, Cheryl Hines, James Edward Olmos, Jimmy Rankin, Melissa Gilbert, AJ Cook, Minnie Driver, Rob Morrow and Tim Busfield.

The stars will spend two action-packed days skiing and competing in fun events at the world-renowned Sunshine Village Ski and Snowboard Resort.

The event will culminate with a gala dinner at The Fairmont Banff Springs, and concert featuring Lyle Lovett and his Large Band.

"Hollywood loves Sunshine and we are pleased to host this fun-filled event in support of the Waterkeepers Alliance."
