“While skiing is an important reason so many people - both guides and skiers - return year after year to International Week, it really is the group itself that is the draw. People make lifelong friendships, and both skiers and guides inevitably learn something new about themselves - and about people and life - each time we come to Ski for Light and Snow Mountain Ranch.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GRANBY, CO (Friday, January 16) -  Ski for Light, Inc® will be celebrating its 40th annual International Week at Snow Mountain Ranch Sunday, January 25 through Saturday, January 31.  Ski for Light is an all-volunteer non-profit organization founded in 1975 that teaches cross-country skiing to visually- or mobility-impaired adults. 

This will be the ninth Ski for Light International Week held at Snow Mountain Ranch and in Grand County, Colorado. The week’s activities will range from a 10k Race complete with opening ceremonies, to technique clinics offered at the Snow Mountain Ranch Nordic Center. Events off the trails and into the evenings will include a silent auction, live music, bonfires and even a dueling pianos concert – just to name a few.
 
This year’s International Week attendees include more than 250 skiers and guides, as well as volunteer workers, hailing from 38 states and six countries. 47 attendees will be experiencing Ski for Light for the first time, while 38 will be returning for at least their 20th International Week.
 
“While skiing is an important reason so many people - both guides and skiers - return year after year to International Week, it really is the group itself that is the draw,” says Peter Slatin, Ski for Light representative and International Week skier. “People make lifelong friendships, and both skiers and guides inevitably learn something new about themselves - and about people and life - each time we come to Ski for Light and Snow Mountain Ranch.”
