The Laurentian Ski Museum in collaboration with the Parish of Saint-Sauveur presents the 2nd annual “Blessing of the skiers”, a tradition abandoned in the 1950’s, Saturday, December 9th at 9am on the steps of the Catholic church. The event will terminate no later than 9:30, allowing everyone to get to their ski destination early. The Church is also offering complimentary coffee and hot chocolate to all.
Whatever your faith, your type of skiing or snowboarding, you’re invited with your skis, snowboard or snowshoesto this brief spiritual gathering to encourage a snowy and safe ski Winter.
“Climate changes can often affect our ski seasons” mentions Guy Thibaudeau, board member of the LSM and organiser of the event. “Best to have all chances with us and this blessing can only help” he adds.
The event will close with “A Toast to Winter” as we sing the hymn to Winter “Let it Snow”.
