Skiing, backpacking and many other outdoor physical activities are exhilerating for all of those who participate. This holds true for wilderness enthusiasts with visual and mobility impairments just the same as for people without disabilities.

The aim Colorado Regional Ski For Light strives for is to enhance access to mountain sporting endeavors by bringing together both people who are blind and/or mobility-impaired, and sighted and able-bodied who enjoy skiing and backpacking in the Rocky Mountains.

Each year Colorado Regional Ski For Light hosts a fun-filled weekend of cross country skiing and fellowship. Sighted Nordic skiers share their love for the sport with VIPs (Visually-impaired participants) and MIPs (Mobility-impaired participants). Guides learn how to use verbal descriptions and directions to help their VIP or MIP traverse the groomed trails safely and at times with a little grace.
