As has already been noted here and elsewhere, it's impossible to sync between iCloud (contacts, iCal, tasks) and Blackberry.
This is a major problem for me and I do hope BB will update the software soon.

Well, as viciousferret has posted, BB is indeed "aware of the problem and working on it".
The problem comes from the fact that this "iCloud migration process" has removed the local data files from the computer to the "cloud".
This logically creates problem to the BB desktop software of course.
The only workaround for the moment is to repatriate / recreate local files from backups (if available for the calendars) and to switch off iCloud temporarily in the system settings. For the contacts, you can choose to keep them on the Mac when unchecking them in the iCloud control panel.
For the calendars it is not the case unfortunately. From there the need to have backups available.
For the contacts at least this solves the problem with BB desktop software ... for the moment.
Of course, you "lose" the iCloud functionality while doing this.
Nothing is simple, isn't it?

I just had the same issues. I don't sync very often, so I had software changes on my iMac as well as the updated BB software. Had issues with both calendar and contacts. Created a new calendar "on my Mac" through the File-New Calendar command. That made all my calendars visible to the BB and I was able to sync the ones I wanted. Through system preferences, I unclicked Contacts from iCloud and then my contacts showed up just fine (I have a group for BlackBerry that omits contacts I won't need to contact from my phone). Simple click...then a simple click back. I'm back in business....after a few minutes of near panic at losing both my calendar AND my contacts!
