  • Title: What Is Ski for Light?
    Descriptive info: is an all-volunteer, non-profit, organization founded in 1975.. The mission of the organization is to teach blind, visually- and mobility-impaired adults the sport of classic cross-country skiing, to give participants who have already mastered the basics the chance to improve their skills and endurance, and to enable participants to just have fun on the snow.. Each year Ski for Light, Inc.. conducts a week-long event that attracts upwards of 300 participants and guides.. The location of the event changes from year to year in an effort to spread the Ski for Light philosophy and idea to as many parts of the country as possible.. During the Ski for Light week each disabled skier is paired for the entire week with an experienced, sighted, able-bodied cross-country skier who acts as ski instructor and guide.. The disabled person skis in tracks or grooves in the snow, while the guide skis in a parallel set of tracks.. The guide informs the skier about upcoming changes in the terrain and trail, offers instructional tips and suggestions, support as necessary, encouragement, and describes the countryside.. The visually- and mobility-impaired adults who attend each Ski for  ...   them, and much more than they themselves believed.. They leave Ski for Light with a sense of accomplishment and motivation that carries over to every aspect of their lives back home.. The volunteer guides who attend Ski for Light are a very special group of people.. They pay the same event fees as disabled skiers so that they can share a favorite activity with someone who would otherwise not have the opportunity to participate.. Most of these guides discover that in the process of giving of themselves they are getting as much or more back in return.. Many of them return to each event, year after year.. Ski for Light relies on the generosity and support of individuals, corporations, fraternal groups and foundations to keep the cost of each event affordable for all who wish to attend.. If you would like to financially support the program go to..

  • Title: Information For Prospective First-time Ski for Light Attendees
    Descriptive info: Information For Prospective First-time Ski for Light Attendees.. If you are like most people who first find their way to the Ski for Light website, you have heard good things from friends, family or acquaintances about SFL.. You are curious, but you don't really understand what Ski for Light is, or why so many people who have attended one of our events call it the experience of a lifetime.. Can it really be all that people have said? Isn't it just a "learn-to-ski" program?.. On this page we will describe for you what the SFL organization and program is all about, and try to put into words for you what makes it so special, and so different from other adaptive programs.. After learning more, we hope that you will decide that attending the next Ski for Light event could be worth a try.. The Ski for Light Organization.. is an all-volunteer not-for-profit corporation that was founded in 1975.. It was created by a group of Norwegian-Americans who were familiar with a program in Norway, the Ridderrenn, and the success that program had enjoyed over the years in teaching blind/visually-impaired and mobility-impaired people the Norwegian national sport of cross-country skiing.. The two cornerstone premises, or beliefs, that led to the creation of Ski for Light were that::.. Blind/visually-impaired and mobility-impaired people can learn how to cross-country ski quite well, and have fun while doing it, if given proper instruction and equipment, and if paired with a sighted, experienced cross-country skier to act as instructor and guide.. Experienced, sighted cross-country skiers will find it fun and rewarding to share their love of skiing by being an instructor/guide for someone who can't easily have that experience on his/her own.. Ski for Light has thrived for all these years because of the continuing truth of these beliefs.. They remain as true today as they were in 1975, and are the foundation upon which the entire program is built.. The Ski for Light Week and Program.. The Cross-Country Skiing Parts of the Week.. conducts a week-long cross-country skiing event at a U.. location that varies from year to year.. For the list of places where the Ski for Light week has been held in the past, visit our.. Location History.. The primary goal of the week is to teach blind, visually-impaired and mobility-impaired people who have never skied before the basics of the sport, and to give people who have already learned the basics a chance to improve their skill and technique, or to let them just have fun on the snow.. About 25% of the skiers are first-time participants each year, while the remaining 75% are people who have attended before.. The week usually attracts 250 or more total attendees.. The typical composition of the group is:.. 100 or more people who are blind or visually-impaired.. 10-15 people who are mobility-impaired.. 115 or more able-bodied sighted instructor/guides.. 15 to 50 skiers and guides from foreign countries, including a delegation from Norway.. 10 to 20 companions and volunteers who help with many of the non-skiing tasks that make the event run so smoothly.. The entire group stays for the entire week, from Sunday evening of the first week to Sunday morning of the second week, at a single event hotel.. All meals are group meals.. The fee paid by all attendees - guides, disabled skiers, and volunteers alike - covers hotel room for all seven nights, all 20 meals, transportation to/from the nearest airport at the beginning and end of the week, transportation each day to/from the ski area, cross-country trail fees, and, for first-time disabled skiers only, the use of rental ski equipment for the week.. A prospective disabled participant does not have to be an athlete to participate, but merely someone who is interested in enjoying a more physically active lifestyle and who feels that his/her overall health and level of fitness will allow safe participation in the program.. The only expectation of new participants is that during the week they give cross-country skiing a serious try.. A prospective instructor/guide does not need any previous experience guiding disabled skiers.. An extensive training program is held on Saturday evening and Sunday morning/afternoon at the start of the week where all new and second-time guides are taught the communication and guiding techniques necessary to safely guide a blind/visually-impaired or mobility-impaired skier.. There is no extra charge for this training.. Beyond attending these training sessions, the only expectation of new guides is that they be at least intermediate level classic cross-country skiers who are capable of  ...   and informal activities, a group dinner each evening, with presentations and awards toward the end of dinner on some nights.. When skiers return from the ski area each day, at anywhere from 2:30 to 4:30 pm, some choose to head for the lounge, swimming pool or hot-tub to meet old friends and make new ones while others choose to nap or just hang out in their room.. Some choose to join one of the "special-interest" sessions held each afternoon.. These popular sessions allow volunteer group leaders to share information about topics such as their hobby, job, language or almost any subject with others who want to know more about it.. After dinner activities vary from year to year, but usually include a DJ some nights, a silent auction, a program or entertainment with some sort of local flavor, Norway Night, where members of the Norwegian Delegation entertain the group, and a banquet followed by a dance on Saturday.. Why Do So Many People Return to Ski for Light Year After Year?.. Part of the answer to this question is that the two cornerstone beliefs upon which SFL was created remain powerful and true year after year: blind/visually- impaired and mobility impaired people really can learn to ski quite competently and have a lot of fun while doing it, and; sighted, experienced cross-country skiers really do leave SFL feeling as if they have received more back than they have given during the week.. The rest of the answer is that the total Ski for Light experience is much more than just learning how to ski.. It is much more than just the combination of both skiing and non-skiing activities and a busy schedule.. It is, in fact, how people who have attended usually feel about themselves and about others at the end of the week.. This is the end result of several things that are not immediately obvious unless you have attended a Ski for Light event:.. Blind/visually-impaired and mobility-impaired individuals usually discover, in the process of learning how to ski, that they can accomplish much more, both on and off the snow, than others have told them was possible for a person with disabilities.. They often develop a new sense of self-confidence and motivation and take this back home to tackle the problems of everyday life with new energy and drive.. Mobility-impaired participants usually discover that the dangers of ice, snow and outdoor activity for wheelchair users that they have been warned about for years are not always true.. In addition, they discover the benefits of increased aerobic activity and a more physically active lifestyle, which carries over to their life at home.. Guides usually discover how personally rewarding and gratifying it is to give of their time and ability when it allows another person to achieve goals that might not be achievable without their involvement.. This often carries over to new activities, interests and personal goals in everyday life back home.. One last but very powerful factor behind why so many people return year after year is the organizational culture that has evolved at SFL over the years.. While it may sound a bit trite, it is quite true that Ski for Light is one of the very few places where a disabled person does not have to think much about being disabled.. No one much notices, or cares.. People are treated as individuals, not disabled individuals.. There is always a friendly face or voice if you want a friend or need assistance, but no one will make false assumptions about your abilities.. Would You Like to Know More?..
