LEAD, SD -
About 85 disabled people and 100 volunteers are skiing and socializing at the 32nd annual Ski for Light in the Black Hills.
It gives people with vision problems or physical handicaps the opportunity to do some downhill skiing or cross country skiing. Some participants use special skis or sleds; others hit the slopes with the help of volunteer guides.
The four-day event concludes Thursday with a fun race day when participants can compete against the clock. A 17-member board of directors runs the event.
