Ski enthusiasts dreaming of a cross-country ski trail in Orléans got a $15,000 boost from the city to help make their project a reality.

The group known as Ski Heritage East said the city recently announced it would be funding part of the project, though it falls short of the $40,000 needed to hire a groomer to maintain the trial for the entire season.

The 8-kilometre trail runs near the Ottawa River from Green's Creek to Trim Road and would be open for for classic skiing, snowshoeing, fat-tire cycling and walking.
