Lakehead Superior Nordic Association (LSNA) is a partnership between Big Thunder Nordic Ski Club and Lappe Nordic Ski Club which was formed to create a sustainable race hosting organization. LSNA was created to bid for, and host, provincial and national level cross-country ski races and competitions, as well as to promote interest and participation in cross-country skiing in the Thunder Bay area. LSNA is a separate corporation and distinct member club of Cross-Country Ski Ontario (XCSO) and Nordiq Canada with six board members, three from each of the member clubs.
In addition to hosting provincial and national events, LSNA provides affordable, local race opportunities in a low-key setting for athletes in the Thunder Bay area. The LSNA Fresh Air Race Series provides learning opportunities for our volunteers and a chance for Big Thunder and Lappe members to work side-by-side, which ultimately brings our local ski community closer together.
