“I can’t describe it. It’s been absolutely beyond my imagination.”

Congratulations to 99-year-old Edyth Warne who scored her first turns at South Dakota’s Terry Peak Ski Area during a Black Hills Ski for Light event. Black Hills Pioneer reports Edyth had been stoked for the day for months and can now cross off skiing from her bucketlist along side going to a Liberace concert and seeing the ocean. Warne is planning to celebrate her 100th birthday on March 20th. Cheers!

ABOUT BLACK HILLS SKI FOR LIGHT: 

Ski for Light offers two skiing venues, cross-country and down-hill along with snowshoing and snowmobile rides at our annual winter Ski for Light (SFL) event held in the Black Hills of South Dakota. This four day event is held the latter part of January. The cross-country area is located on Wharf Resources, a mine reclamation area, while the down-hill area is located at Terry Peak Ski Area.We welcome all blind/visually impaired individuals and mobility impaired individuals to join us and participate in these activities. All levels of experience from the individual who has never skied to the advanced skier are welcome. The highlight of the event is the last day’s fun races where skiers have a chance to show off their skiing skills.
