Our mission


The Laurentian Ski Museum (LSM) is a regional thematic historic museum. The museum was founded in Saint-Sauveur in 1982. Since May 2019, the LSM is a museum institution approved by the Quebec government. He’s presenting a permanent exhibition.

The mission of the Museum is built on four approaches:


An historical approach

From its collection and its archives, the LSM raises the subject of history, as linked to the development of skiing as a winter sport, and of its impact on social, economical and cultural life of the Laurentians area.


An approach to highlight the area cultural identity

It is important to preserve the collective memory of the role played by this sport in the development of the Laurentians, and of the province of Quebec and Canada. The Museum wishes to bring out the best of this heritage that has marked the regional cultural identity.


A public-oriented approach

Aware of the public’s needs and interests, the Museum provides for the development and loyalty of various types of clients, through its different activities.


An educational-centered approach

The distribution is focused on the promotion of the Museum’s high-quality permanent and temporary exhibitions.


A fundamental principle

The collection of the LSM is its “raison d’être” and the role of educational action is to highlight and disseminate it by following its mission.

From October to May, the LSM hosts the tourist welcome office of Saint-Sauveur.
