News

Our Ski Club Annual General meeting held in November at the Pat Porter Living Center was attended by 17 skiers.  Goals for the season were discussed.  Members were made aware that our meetings were open to anyone who would like to offer input.  Our board of directors remains unchanged.

Our Ski Season ran from December 23 – March 20.  Despite 66 cm of snow fall over the winter and, colder temperatures Sandilands trails had an excellent turnout of skiers and a record number of skiers were attracted to Quarry Oaks golf course during the ski season.  Clutch was replaced on a snow machine.  Thanks again to our groomers who went extra the extra mile to provide excellent trails.   Sandilands, Quarry Oaks and Steinbach Fly In golf courses were groomed on a regular basis.

The Jackrabbits Program had a good season at Quarry Oaks Golf course thanks to the volunteer coaching staff.  Children participating in the program had the opportunity to practice their skills learned in the program at Sandilands.  We had a number of new skiers, in the program that showed a dramatic improvement from the beginning of the season.  Eleven children received their awards at the windup in Sandilands in April.received their awards at the windup in Sandilands in April.

The Sandilands Jackrabbit Program is hoping to attract additional children, families and coaches to ensure the long term development of the program.  Initial time commitments for the coaches would be 1-2 hours of time every Saturday from early January until late March.  An introduction to Community Coaching certificate (or higher designation) would be required for those interested in coaching.  Family and children participating in the scheduled ski lesson time of approximately 1 hour each Saturday.  Additional information on coaching or participating in Jackrabbits can be requested through the Sandilands Ski Club email (sandilands.ski.club@gmail.com)

The Sandilands Ski Day held in late February was a success despite the temperatures ranging around -23 celcius.  Eight of eighteen participants were from the Reimer family.  After skiing, participants enjoyed hearty food and fellowship as they were cozy in the new warming hut. 

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!

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.

Events

Plan to come out and assist with trail prep this fall.  You are guaranteed to have a good time.   We will meet 10:00 am at the new warming hut off the green parking lot across from the Wayside Park.   Email  sandilands.ski.club@gmail.com  to let us know that you will be assisting at trail prep or if you have questions about trial prep day.   We need to know how many volunteers to cook for as lunch is provided.  Cordless drills,  pruning shears,  shovels,  chain saws,  a splitting axe and lots of workers are appreciated.
