Ski for Light offers cross-country skiing for the visually impaired on a one-on-one basis with a sighted skier/guide. Modeled after the "Knights Race" in Norway, SFL gives the visually impaired a chance to get involved in vigorous outdoor activity and the sighted skier a new awareness of what the blind and visually impaired can do. In addition, social activities provide everyone with a chance to relax and form lasting friendships.
