Ski For Light Canada Governance

Cross-Country Skiing Beyond Disability

Board of Directors

Ski for Light Canada is governed by a volunteer board of directors.

Vice President and Acting President, Anna Bentley, BC

It was while working as a letter carrier that one of Anna’s customers introduced her to cross-country skiing with the blind and visually impaired. Since then, she has attended about twenty Ski For Light Canada events, mostly with the same skier. Now retired, she fills her time with volunteer work, gardening, cooking, crafts, puzzles, and walking.

She is volunteer treasurer for her local brownie unit and a past board member for the Rocky Mountain Couples Retreat.

Director at Large, Tracy Mousseau, ON

Tracy has attended Ski For Light Canada since 2015 and thoroughly enjoys it. She is a sit skier and is guided by her husband, Alan Stummer. She has served on the board for three years and has learned a lot about this organization and what it has to offer to blind/visually impaired people and sighted guides. The need for both groups to keep it going. She and Alan own a 30 foot sailboat and spend spring, summer and fall on it: sailing, sleeping, cooking, and, of course, swimming off the boat. Last year she missed not having friends sailing with them.

“Ski For Light Canada is more than a chance to spend several days skiing, it is also a social event to meet new and old friends. We know of two couples who met at Ski For Light Canada!”

Alan Stummer, Ski Guide
