Year in Review

One of the standout changes for the club this year was our brand-new logo, designed by the talented Brent Manke. This logo not only adorns our new trail maps but also represents a harmonious blend of classic aesthetics and modern design. As you explore our trails this season, keep an eye out for our fresh logo.

The club is proud to reveal new map kiosks positioned at key junction on our trails. They were paid in part by grand money and were built and installed by the skilled SRSS carpentry students under the expert supervision of Paul Wilson. They encountered installation challenges due to a late spring snow that made delivering and post pounding a challenge. Despite the hurdles, they persevered and made our kiosks a reality, ensuring you have the best trail navigation experience. The maps are also updated and incorporate a number system that helps trail users identify numbered junctions on the map with numbers on the actual map kiosk.

Thanks to our dedicated volunteer coaches, we were able to offer a series of all-ages learn-to-ski workshops. These workshops have introduced many newcomers to the joys of cross-country skiing and have nurtured new talent within our club. A big shoutout to our incredible coaches for their expert guidance!

This season, we introduced a  Weekly Wednesday Night Ski at Quarry Oaks. Under the leadership of Greg Penner, our club members donned headlamps and skied through the oak trees, creating a mesmerizing spectacle. Evening skiing was followed by hot chocolate and visiting in the parking lot. Despite the inherent challenge of coordinating perfect weather every Wednesday, things went well for the most part.

Sandilands Ski Day continued to thrive under the stewardship of Merle and Yvonne Hiebert, with the invaluable help of dedicated volunteers. It was another successful event that brought our members together for a day of fun on the trails, delicious food, and shared memories.

Approximately forty- four skiers enjoyed a great ski, excellent home- made food and visits with fellow skiers at the Sandilands Ski Day in late February. Ken Reimer spoke at the event as we celebrated our 30th year as a ski club. The cloudy day with temperatures hovering around 13 degrees made a perfect day for the ski and the celebration.


We are once again offering How to Ski instructional workshops at Quarry Oaks. Dates and Registration Information HERE.

Due to marginal ski conditions, we are cancelling the Sandilands Ski Day for 2024. We hope to offer it again next year!

Saturday October 28,2022.   Plan to come out and assist with trail prep this fall. You are guaranteed to have a good time. We will meet at 10:00 am at the new warming hut off the green parking lot across from Wayside Park. 

A home- made lunch will be provided for volunteers who work at trail perp.

Cordless drills, pruning shears, shovels, chain saws, a splitting axe and lots of workers are appreciated.

Our Annual General Meeting this year will be held in the Pat Porter Living Center fireside room, 10 Chrysler Gate, Steinbach Manitoba. Meeting will start at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, November 21, 2023. See you there.

Membership/trail fees will be accepted at the meeting, and will also be available by signing up on Zone 4, clicking on the QR codes that will be present at the trail heads or down load and mail the PDF registration form from the Ski Club website.

A $10.00 discount is available for members who pay before November 24, 2023. Please pay before snow falls, as insurance only covers those skiing with an active membership or who pay trail fees and sign in each time they ski at the Marchand store.

Coming Soon!


The Club is pleased to offer 3 one day  learn to ski workshops for 2024!

Tech Tip

More Glide Less effort!

Your ski’s should receive a hot wax every 50-80km of skiing. A hot wax applies a GLIDE specific wax to the areas of the ski that contact the snow during the glide phase. If you haven’t applied glide wax in a while, it’s possible that you are working harder and going slower than you need to be! 


Sandilands Ski Club maintains three trail clusters.

Some trails are open at Quarry Oaks. Sandilands is tracked and ready. See Trails page.


Fly In Golf Course

The Fly In Golf Course trail is all about convenience. Located near the heart of the City of Steinbach, it's close enough for a quick ski when time is limited!

Quarry Oaks

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.
