What is the LSDA? Lake Superior Division - Alpine is the regional sport administrative body for alpine ski racing. It joins three other Divisions within Ontario (National Capital Division, Northern Ontario Division and Alpine Ontario South) to work together as Alpine Ontario to coordinate alpine ski racing in the province. Together, this group represents over 50 ski clubs, 5,000 racers, and 30,000 members. In a given year, more than 3,000 recreational and competitive races will be staged in more than 50 towns and cities across Ontario. Lake Superior Division - Alpine serves the region of Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario. Funds raised support our local aspiring athletes from the grass roots level (Nancy Greene Program) through to the Ontario Ski Team.

There are 3 registered clubs under the LSDA umbrella. PASC - Port Arthur Ski Club, NAC - Norwesters Alpine Club, Ski Haus Senior Circuit - TBSSA.
Our mailing address is Suite 375, 1100-C Memorial Avenue, Thunder Bay, Ontario, P7CB 4A3.
The LSDA is funded by the support of its member clubs through athlete program fees, corporate sponsorships and in kind sponsorships, Bingos, the Trillium Foundations, the Cash Calendar and other raffles, the Ski Swap, our Alpine Rendezvous, and various other fundraising initiatives.
In addition to this website, the LSDA has a facebook page where all current social media postings and pictures are being shared.  
Our biggest social event of the year is our Alpine Rendezvous. Its a great event that brings together our ski community for some drinks and gourmet food in support of Alpine Skiing in Thunder Bay
