Ski for Light

We picked up skiers, fed them lunch, and they were on their way January 22nd to William Watson lodge in Kananaskis for the week. Huge thanks to everyone who helped out! Even the weather cooperated as the days of -30 or worse eased up. For 2025 the dates are Feb. 2-8.

Because SFL can book William Watson lodge only every second year, next year the event will be in Canmore with participants staying at a hotel. That will be more expensive. Please consider Ski for Light in your charitable giving.
