Sundance sightings: Hemsworth boys hit the slopes

Chris Hemsworth at Sundance Though neither Chris Hemsworth or Liam Hemsworth has a film circulating at this year's almost-done Sundance Film Festival, they still hit Park City, Utah, for some action sports.

The boys participated in Oakley's Learn to Ride program fueled by Muscle Milk, where they got to snowboard with pro Sammy Luebke. Though sibling rivalry was alive and well, both boys were smoked by Chris' wife, Elsa Pataky.

On a different slope but still rocking a snowboard, outer-gear brand Burton gave "Gossip Girl" guy Penn Badgley a two-hour experience with board pro Danny Davis.

Mario Lopez at Sundance Back on the street, stars wove in and out of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Lift, including "Extra" host Mario Lopez. The super-fit new dad played with the device and powered up for the festivites on Main with an apple.

Over at Tweet House, Mandalay Entertainment honcho Peter Guber gave a talk on social media and storytelling for an audience including actor William Mapother and Morgan Spurlock (who brought along his crew and camera).

Also spotted: Emile Hirsch popping by the House of Swagg and scoring stuff like Enjoy Lighting flameless candles ... Demi Moore arriving at the festival (where she's been out and about with husband Ashton Kutcher) in high style, via private plane from JetSuite.
