    Skiid Sandilands on Thursday. Did 3 laps of the green trail. Quite a bit of debris pretty much throughout. Snow was soft and when it cools off I strongly suspect it will be transformed into ice. Started with Swix VR75 (+3) but that didn’t work for long. Ended up using Swix red klister but with the amount of debris it felt like I had mini snow…[Read more]

  • Groomer report 9:30am: Too warm to groom. River crossings closed. Wood bridge loosing snow fast. Steel bridge ok. Standing water in places, classic tracks holding up mostly. No luck for us this Louis Riel holiday. Skiing recommended only for the most intrepid.

  • ‪Midday report: everything is “ok”. Hills are getting icy-beginners use caution, new skiers avoid please. Cloud cover is helping. ‬

  • Sunday morning west Bluestem, Chickadee and Aspen were icy and fast. Chickadee was getting sloppier with all the traffic. Sadly, the rain started just before noon…wish it was snow instead!

  • Sorry, I mean the RIVER CROSSING at Jimmy’s Dip is closed (due to water). All BRIDGES are open!

  • Grooming report 9:20am Sun. Skate renovated-great shape. Classic tracks holding up for now. Bridges loosing snow. Wood bridge open, steel bride (Jimmy’s Dip) closed. We’re hanging in there. Get out and enjoy!

  • Today, Saturday Feb 18th, classic skied the Wasagaming townsite trails (Campground, town connector and South Lake). The Campground was in the best shape with mostly full depth tracks consisting of icy sections, some areas with untransformed snow and soft mush on the south exposed areas. South Lake was similar but the townsite connector was mainly…[Read more]

  • Grooming report 9:20am. Skate renovated-great shape. Classic tracks look good-icy in spots. Sunny +3 later today. Get out while it’s cool!

    We can make trails in the snow but we cannot influence the short term weather.
    The Classic Blue was groomed and set Wednesday evening , set up excellent. Those Classic tracks should have held their shape for early part of Saturday

    From Ardythe McMaster:
    Tracks deteriorated in the sun and +7C this afternoon. Given the warm temperatures, no grooming is planned until Saturday night. Sunday skiing should be good, but any skiers on Saturday should expect old, soft tracks.

  • Jim renovated all the skate trails this morning. Lots of school kids on the trails today! With luck the temps will drop below 0 overnight and he’ll be able to do something tomorrow am. River looking good right now but that can change any moment. Will update again tomorrow.

  • Skied Bluestem and Aspen Friday morning. Aside from the odd debris, deer footprints and skate-ski disturbances, the classic tracks were still good, but softening in sunny areas. Wish the groomer hadn’t tracked the hill at the tower…

    • Alison, why do you want the tower hill tracked?
      Steep hills should never be tracked because the tracks hinder step turning, snow plowing, and herringboning. A flat packed surface facilitates those techniques.
      I’ve always been very pleased that the groomer at Sandilands never tracks the short steep hills on the Green and Purple trails.

    From Ardythe McMaster:
    Bittersweet Ski Report for Loppet Day.
    We have been skiing the trails and we have lots of snow. So far the warm weather has hardly made a dent in our snow. We have done some test grooming and we are confident that the trails will renovate well, especially as only +1C is forecast for Sunday. Anyone with waxless skis, or…[Read more]

  • Wednesday afternoon all ski trails were groomed and in very nice shape, including the Group Use skate trail. Thanks to the groomer for a great job! – Alison

  • Feb.15 a.m.—Did the full Beaver Pond classic style.I expected the trail to be in pretty good shape and it was except I did not anticipate the amount of debris that was in the tracks.A lot of pine needles which slowed the glide a lot on most of trail,not enjoyable at all.The skate skiers seemed to have a better time of it.Would not recommend…[Read more]

    Hello CCSki folks,

    We gather a few donations (and make receipts too) for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.

  • Grand Beach, Wednesday, -8° to -2°. All trails.
    9 skiers — Nature Manitoba’s Grey Hares.
    Grand Beach was not touched by this past Monday’s melting in many locations in southern Manitoba.
    – All classic tracks were excellent. Most were not at all close to the trail edge (but not so far to the middle of the trail that the skate track was too narro…[Read more]
