Dear Friends of Ski for Light:
Come celebrate the 42nd/43rd Anniversary of Black Hills Regional Ski for Light (BHSFL) with old and new friends and continue the years of discovery, growth and spiritual bonding.
EVENT DATES & INFORMATION: The 42nd/43rd Annual Black Hills Regional Ski for Light Event will be held at TERRY PEAK & WHARF RESOURCES from January 23-27, 2022. Scheduled events will include four days of cross-country and alpine skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobile rides for visually impaired and mobility impaired participants. Registration will be Sunday, January 23, 2022 from 2:00 – 5:00 PM, at the Mineral Palace in Deadwood.
EVENT: We need experienced skiers as guides in both the alpine and cross-country programs. It is essential that guides be able to commit to all four days. If you do not have any skiing experience or do not feel comfortable being a guide,
please mark your application as a volunteer. We need non-skiing volunteers and assistants to help in other essential areas. Ski For Light will provide: four lunches, one evening meal, trail fees, cross-country equipment as necessary, and
downhill ski rentals and lift passes for guides. We offer a meal package option you may purchase for $90.00 which covers meals not provided by SFL. The meal packets can only be used at the Gem Restaurant located in the Mineral Palace. The SFL Banquet will be Thursday night and tickets cost $15.00. To eliminate last minute confusion and provide accurate numbers for meals, we urge you to send $15.00 for each banquet ticket needed, with your application. Costs of tickets on
the night of the banquet will be $20.00. We’ll accept check or money order made payable to “SFL”. If you wish to pay by Visa or Mastercard, you can only do so by applying online at our website at www.bhsfl.org.
LODGING INFORMATION: Guides and volunteers who wish to stay in Deadwood during the event are encouraged to do so. Our headquarters will be at Mineral Palace. SFL has confirmed lodging costs at approximately $40/$50 per night based on double occupancy and have blocked rooms at several hotels. Only SFL can make your reservation at the reduced rate and will do so when you send in your completed application. Guides and Volunteers are solely responsible for paying for their hotel directly for costs and meals not sponsored by SFL.
