Dear Friends of Ski for Light:
Come celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Black Hills Regional Ski for Light with old and new friends and continue the years of discovery, growth and spiritual bonding.
EVENT DATES & INFORMATION: The 40th Annual Black Hills Regional Ski for Light Event will be held at TERRY PEAK & WHARF RESOURCES from January 21-24, 2019. Scheduled events will include four days of cross-country and alpine skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobile rides for visually impaired and physically challenged participants. Registration will be Sunday, January 20, 2019 from 2:00 – 5:00 PM, at the Mineral Palace in Deadwood.
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. Cost of tickets on the night of the banquet will be $20.00.
We need experienced skiers as guides in both the cross-country and alpine 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 and cross-country equipment as necessary and downhill ski rentals and lift passes for guides. We now offer a meal package you may purchase for $83 which covers those meals not provided by SFL.
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 costs and meals not sponsored by SFL.
