Are you an experienced classic cross-country skier? Would you like to share your love of cross-country skiing with someone who is unable to experience this joy on their own? Would you like to do this in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere where blind and mobility impaired adults discover they can accomplish more than they might have thought possible, both on and off the snow? If so, then Ski for Light might be for you!
Each year Ski for Light, Inc. (SFL), an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, conducts a weeklong program to teach blind and mobility-impaired adults the sport of cross-country skiing. Each disabled participant is paired with an experienced cross-country skier for six days of instruction and practice on the snow. SFL attracts more than 250 active adults from every corner of the U.S. and around the world. The SFL International Week is much more than just skiing, as late afternoons and evenings are filled with social, cultural and other fun activities.
This year's 31st annual SFL International Week will take place in Granby, Colorado, near Winter Park, from Sunday, January 29 through Sunday, February 5, 2006. Attendees will stay at the Inn at Silver Creek and ski at nearby Snow Mountain Ranch, one of the premier cross-country centers in the country.
Applications and much more information about Ski for Light are available online at www.sfl.org or from Guide Coordinator Brenda Seeger at firstname.lastname@example.org or (507) 274 5502.
