History of skiing in the Laurentians

Creator(s): Musée du Ski des Laurentides

This Virtual Exhibit was prepared from research carried out for an exhibition at the Laurentian Ski Museum, which highlights among other things the 70th anniversary of the Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance (CSIA). This history of ski instruction underlines the fact that the Laurentians can indeed be called the cradle of skiing in Canada.

In this exhibit, we've paid particular attention to skiing in the Laurentians and in the Saint-Sauveur area. Our region, the Laurentians, is unique in North America for its ski centres and network of cross-country trails that wind their way from village to village.

The Museum is currently preparing its permanent exhibition, which will tell the story of skiing in the Laurentians and is to be called: Living in Winter, With Winter, and About Winter.
