Cross Country/Ski de Fond LSM

$7,685 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 77 people in 11 months
Once upon a time, in the town of Lac Ste Marie Quebec, on a picturesque golf course nestled by the hills of the nearby ski resort of Mont Sainte Marie, there were cross country ski trails. These trails were enjoyed by people of all ages and all levels of fitness, enabling them to enjoy the outdoors in wintertime. These people benefited from lower stress levels and better physical health - they were happy all winter and the community thrived as a result. Sadly, this was not a sufficiently profitable business operation, so it was discontinued. But, with so many benefits to such a large number of people, cross country skiing needs to make a comeback at Golf Lac Ste Marie. Expedition LSM, a local non-profit organization run by volunteers has taken up this cause. Government grants are being sought for trail development and signage but they will not cover operational costs (ie. grooming and trail maintenance). This is how YOU can help. Bring this fun and accessible sport back to Lac Ste Marie. We need your support. Let's make our community better for ourselves and for our kids.  Donate today.


Il était une fois, dans la ville de Lac Ste Marie Québec, sur un parcours de golf pittoresque niché au pied des collines de la station de ski voisine du Mont Sainte Marie, il y avait des pistes de ski de fond. Ces sentiers ont été appréciés par des personnes de tous âges et de multiples niveaux de condition physique, leur permettant d'être dehors en hiver. Ces personnes ont bénéficié de niveaux de stress plus bas et d'une meilleure santé physique - elles étaient heureuses tout l'hiver et la communauté a prospéré en conséquence. Malheureusement, ce n'était pas une opération commerciale suffisamment rentable, donc il a été abandonné. Mais, avec tant d'avantages pour un si grand nombre de personnes, le ski de fond doit faire son retour au Golf Lac Ste Marie. Expedition LSM, une organisation locale à but non lucratif dirigée par des bénévoles, a repris cette cause. Des subventions gouvernementales sont recherchées pour l'aménagement de sentiers et la signalisation, mais elles ne couvriront pas les coûts d'exploitation (p. Ex., Le toilettage et l'entretien des sentiers). C'est comment vous pouvez aider. Rapportez ce sport amusant et accessible au lac Ste-Marie. Nous avons besoin de votre appui. Faisons en sorte que notre communauté soit meilleure pour nous et pour nos enfants. Faire un don aujourd'hui.

Take a look! Our trailhead billboard is going to print this week. This 4'x8' sign will help guide trail users on their way as well as reminding them of trail etiquette. This is only one of several large signs we will have up and around the municipality. Note: if your company would like to advertise on our signs, please be in touch with Tina McInnes via email.
