Ski for Light

January 26 - February 2, 2003

North Eastern Pennsylvania Regional

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.

Where: Land of the Vikings Lodge in Sherman, PA (just South of Deposit, NY)

When: January 26- February 2, 2003

Cost: Prices start at $300.00 for room and board (3 meals a day) (limited financial service may be available)
