Blind and visually-impaired skiers and their guides are happy that Ski for Light is happening this year from Feb. 6-12, as in 2021 and 2022 it was cancelled due to Covid. In the meantime many improvements have been made to the William Watson lodge and cabins in Kananaskis where they will stay. (website:   https://skiforlight.ca)
