News

The website you’re seeing is the product of many hours of work put in by the instructor and students of the Advanced Web Design class at the SRSS.  It was truly a collaborative effort that the ski club is truly grateful for!

Our Ski Club Annual General meeting held in November was attended by 14 skiers. Goals for the season and vandalism to the new warming hut were among the topics discussed. Since the meeting we have had the privilege of welcoming Chris Duester, who has taken over as our new web master and joined the Ski Clubs board of directors.

Last fall strong winds caused many trees to fall across the ski trails. We were thankful for the efforts of
thirty volunteers from Sandilands and Charleswood Ski Club, who participated in our Trail Prep day in late October, and the efforts of a number of individuals who volunteered time on other days throughout the fall, to prepare the trails system for the ski season. Volunteers enjoyed community and were rewarded with a healthy snack

Our 2017/18 Ski Season ran from December 15 – March 09. A record number of skiers were attracted to Sandilands during the ski season. We were fortunate to develop a good snow base early in the season which allowed us to maintain good trails despite the infrequent snow falls. We were also fortunate that we didn’t have sled failure until the last grooming of the season. Thanks again to our groomers who went extra the extra mile to provide excellent trails. Sandilands, Quarry Oaks golf course were groomed on a regular basis and Steinbach Fly In as snow permitted.

The Jackrabbits Program had a great season at Quarry Oaks Golf course thanks to the volunteer coaching staff. Children participating in the program had the opportunity trail practice their skills learned in the program at Sandilands. Their skill and confidence improved greatly throughout the season. The 17 children ages 4 -17
received their awards at the windup in Sandilands in April.

The Sandilands Ski Day held late February was a great success. Sunny mild temperatures brought thirty
eight participants to this event. After skiing participants enjoyed great food and fellowship.

This season minor changes were made to the green trail to make grooming easier. For skier safety (You
are Here) signs were posted and the Ski Club has purchased more signs for the trails.

Quarry Oaks offers the only skate ski groomed trail in Southeast Manitoba, along with over 12km of pristine classic tracks winding through the oaks and rolling terrain of the Quarry Oaks Golf Course.

Sandilands Forest

The trails in Sandilands Forest provide over 35km of single tracked trail that wind up and down ancient glacial moraines and through mature stands of Red Pine, Birch and Poplar trees.
